[Toronto Star, James: Draft John Tory for mayor?]
Rob Ford’s surprise popularity with voters has political left, and right, in a frenzy, setting off unlikely talk of a white knight to rescue Toronto.Mr. James also speculates that there is a poll that shows Mr. Ford out in the lead - I don't think that's possible. If it's true ... wow.
And, while I disagree with Mr. James' connotation while defining a red Tory ...
These are fiscal conservatives who fancy themselves as community builders, not mindless budget slashers. They are in bed with the City Summit Alliance, talk about civil society, advocate for the poor, believe in a social safety net and the importance of government. And they worry about Ford’s unbridled conservatism.... he's spot on. I have the same reservations with Mr. Hudak at the provincial level.
I want John Tory back in the race.
