John Tory is a joke

Seriously.  He just is.

Not only does his Keystone Kops war room schedule his big announcement for today – at the precise moment Hudak is detailing his plan to have the Government of Ontario work out of a cardboard box – he comes up this when asked about bike lanes.

Here’s a free tip, John: when you are asked a straightforward question, just – you know – answer it.  Until you figure out how to do that, you are (and always will be) Dithers.

John Tory, verbatim, on bike lanes:




  1. Matt says:

    Is N.K. still with the Tory campaign?

    Is it possible he isn’t the master political strategist he thinks he is?


  2. !o! says:

    For those who can’t read 4 point font…

    “my priority from day 1 as mayor is going to be to make sure we have–keep traffic moving in this city, and I am in favour of making opportunities available for cyclists to get around the city too because that will help, it its own way, to get traffic moving too. But I want to look at the results of discussions that are going on today, and other days, and make sure that whatever we do we are not putting additional obstructions in the way of people getting around in this city, because traffic is at a stand-still at the moment and that’s costing us jobs, it’s hurting the environment, it’s not good for Toronto.”

    christ almighty that was painful to write. blah blah blah f@#(ing blah. remind me of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lj3iNxZ8Dww

    • W the K - No, not Warren says:

      Now imagine listening to his radio show. Three hours a day of something like that. For years.

  3. Ridiculosity says:

    Reads like a Saturday Night Live sketch. Problem is, it’s only Wednesday.

  4. e.a.f. says:

    you say this guy is running for premier of Ontario? all the other parties have to do is keep running this statement.

    We have some idiots out here passing themselves off as politicians, but Hudak takes the cake, or bike, or whatever.

  5. Nasty Bob says:

    Is it true that all his commercials end with the tag ” I’m John Tory and I approve, yet also disapprove, this message” ?

  6. david ray says:

    Geez Louise. Here we are staring down the barrel of climate change where our kids will be shopping for horses and saddles when the grid disappears in thirty or forty years and it won’t matter a Wynne or a Hudak who governs. I’m more concerned about which rich fuck will become the blacksmith and own the sherriff.

  7. e.a.f. says:

    oh, Christ, is the guy running for mayor of Vancouver? We have bike lanes, mayor moonbeam loves them. makes it impossible to get around at some times of the day. they didn’t think to put the lanes one street over from busy streets, no, reduced the number of lanes available to cars and buses. Some bike lanes go up hills, no one but an elite athlete could bike up, then they put the lanes between parked cars and the lanes the cars are in. Oh, so effective for getting bike riders killed. People like tory and mayor moonbeam don’t realize this isn’t Europe, where getting to work is a matter of less than 3 miles.

    oh, well, it will create a job for those painting the green lines for bikes.
