Toronto’s Mayor-elect is meeting with his transition advisory council at city hall this morning.
Transition head and former deputy mayor Case Ootes opened the meeting by talking about what it has been like working with John Tory. He says the mayor-elect reads all the briefing books given to him by staff, and works 18-hour days.
Tory called the team of community leaders together to advise him on three key issues: traffic congestion, his Smart Track plan, and housing.
Housing is on the agenda at this morning’s meeting. Tory says the city provides housing for residents who are in need for one reason or another. But if you were to take each taxpayer on a tour of community housing and ask them if they felt it was adequate, “my guess is the vast majority of Torontonians – almost without exception – would say ‘No I Don’t'”.
Tory takes office December 2nd.
