George Smitherman for Mayor of Toronto

A week is a long time in politics.

I prefer balanced, measured, and pragmatic conservatism in government. I am traditionally an Ontario Progressive Conservative supporter.

I do not support reckless government policy sold under the guise of "conservatism" using the label "respect for the taxpayer". It's always wrongheaded, it's always motivated by emotion, and it always ends up costing more in the long run.

I was a vocal Rocco Rossi supporter. When I learned that he had pulled out of the race, I thought I'd pull out from participation in the Toronto election.

I continue to not want Rob Ford as mayor of Toronto. He represents a corruption of the Canadian conservative brand. His inexperience and his over-zealousness to lead an every-man revolution is indicative of his not being up to the job.

Toronto needs to vote George Smitherman for mayor.
