TORONTO, July 26, 2018 /CNW/ - After careful consideration and consultation with his family Blayne Lastman has decided not to run for public office.
"The last week has been an emotional roller coaster. While I am overwhelmed by the support I have received, my decision not to run is in the best interest of my family, my business and of course, the great City of Toronto," said Lastman.
Offers Support To Tory
"The mayor's job is not one that can be taken lightly. Our city faces many concerns including crime and gridlock. I am well aware of the commitment that John Tory has made to the city and I offer him my full support."
"As news began to break that I was considering running for office, I asked the media for the time and space to consider all my options. The media granted me that time and space and for that I am eternally grateful."
