Toronto Loses Rocco Rossi ...

I went to the beautiful city of Paris, France, for a short vacation last week, to come back to news that my candidate, Rocco Rossi, had dropped out of the Toronto electoral race. Miss a week, miss a lot.

The past nine months have been an incredible journey. I have been moved by the stories of hope and inspiration that Torontonians from all walks of life have shared with me.

With your help, we have made a real impact on this race and the future of our city.

We have shed light on the issues that matter to Torontonians: getting value for our money, moving Toronto forward, and making City Hall honest.

Make no mistake, together we accomplished great things.

I have been inspired by the countless volunteers and supporters who took time out of their busy schedules to knock on doors, make phone calls, attend event and pound in lawn signs.

I have been inspired by the people from every corner of our city who have stood up and demanded change.

I have been inspired by Torontonians and our great city.

Rhonnie, DJ and I thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for all you have done and continue to do. It has been a true honour representing you as a candidate for mayor, and I thank you for the opportunity.

It baffles me that people like Rocco Rossi think they're good enough to start at the top. Why didn't he run for a Councillor position first? He never been elected to any public office and then he wants to be Mayor of Canada's largest city. Ego, that's what it comes down to. Ask Ottawa what it's like having a Mayor who had no experience. Heck, as that Mayor himself ... he's said his first two years in office were terrible (by the way, he's half right).
