He's an ugly man. He shouldn't be elected at all. He has done nothing for the community. He has no good attribute and thus, should not be elected for Mayor.


1st of all, he's not ugly.(1)

2nd of all, that has nothing to do with being a good mayor.

Con also says that he has done nothing for the community.

"In 2012 he was made a member of the Order of Ontario in recognition for being "a consummate champion for the Greater Toronto Region as a founding member and chair of CivicAction and chairs and volunteers on countless fundraising campaigns"

Aside from being familiar with law, which is important for a mayor,
Tory also has experience, which is key to being a good mayor.
He has both political, & organizational experience, which are crucial to being a good mayor.
He has shown that he is a capable manager/organizer.

A bit on his life from wikipedia:

From 1981 to 1985, Tory served in the Office of the Premier of Ontario, Bill Davis as Principal Secretary to the Premier and Associate Secretary of the Cabinet. In 1985, Davis retired as Premier. Tory joined the Office of the Canadian Special Envoy on Acid Rain, as Special Adviser to the Special Envoy. The Special Envoy had been appointed by the federal government of Brian Mulroney to review matters of air quality with a United Statescounterpart.

Tory later served as Tour Director and Campaign Chairman to then Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, and managed the 1993 federal election campaign of Mulroney's successor, Kim Campbell.

From 1995 to 1999, he returned to Rogers Communications Inc., but this time as president and CEO of Rogers Media which had become one of Canada's largest publishing and broadcasting companies.

Tory also served as the ninth commissioner of the Canadian Football League from 1996 to 2000
