John Tory will be the moderator for the Weston-area mayoral debate.
The debate will include the five most prominent candidates: Rob Ford, Joe Pantalone, Rocco Rossi, George Smitherman, and Sarah Thomson. Rocco Achampong, who has not been prominent in this year’s contest, will join them, as he grew up in the area.
John Tory is, of course, the former leader of the Conservative Party, former mayoral candidate, and an all-round go-getter. He was widely rumoured to have been considering a run for the mayorship himself.
The debate has been organized by the residents’ associations of Weston, Silverthorn, Mount Dennis, and Greenhills. It will be held at 7:30 on September 9 at York Memorial Collegiate, 2690 Eglinton Avenue West, at the corner of Keele St. and Eglinton Ave.
