John Tory Leading by Example

I don't think it's realistic to think that the politics will ever be completely left out - we are human, after all, and some people depend on politics for their livelihood.

Yet even for politicians, politics can sometimes be put on the backburner:

It is how we react to situations like this that makes us Canadian - a welcoming and compassionate city and country.

John Tory stepped up to the plate; he led by example.  He set a model for others to follow.  He even encouraged fellow mayors to do as he as done.

I'm sometimes ridiculed for my optimism.  On days like today, I know my belief in humanity is not misplaced.

Of course all this is just a step, but it's one that's being taken.  That's where it must begin.
