John Tory's Bad Week In Review: Weak Judgment

    TORONTO, Oct. 6 /CNW/ -

    Monday - Back Flip with a Twist
    Facing a revolt from his candidates, Tory unveils a pathetic private
school ploy. But he would still go ahead with a Commission and pilot projects
before MPPs would even have a chance to vote. And this comes 24 hours after he
defended his private school religious school scheme in the only local
candidate debate he bothered to show up for. If this were gymnastics it would
be a perfect 10 for 'back flip with a twist'.

    Tuesday - Attention Shoppers!
    Trying to escape the fallout from his private school ploy John Tory holds
a press conference in a Scarborough grocery store. But he can't escape as
voters all day keep rejecting the idea of sending tax dollars to private
religious schools. Weak judgment in aisle one!

    Wednesday - One Law For All?
    John Tory displays more weak judgment again when he takes his campaign to
an advance polling station. You're not supposed to hold campaign events in the
same location as a polling station. And you're definitely not supposed to park
a bus with your name on it in front of the sidewalk voters have to walk past.
One law for all?

    Thursday - HoJo in trouble!
    John Tory and Howard Hampton - who have become known as the latest glam
couple HoJo - experience a rough patch in their relationship when Howard (Ho)
has a public meltdown and attacks John (Jo) as being a "disaster" and blames
him for taking too much attention away with his private religious school
scheme. Brangelina call and offer the name of a really great couple's
counselor. Then, HoJo bond again over their three year history of voting
together against Clean Water, and the Ontario Child Benefit.

    Friday - Still Don't Get It
    Tory promised to run a positive campaign but went negative right out of
the gate with a barrage of negative ads, which together amount to the most
negative political ad campaign in Ontario history. New negative ads were
released this week in a vain attempt to change the channel from his disastrous
scheme to rip $500 million out of publicly funded schools for private
religious schools. Oddly, he released an ad that resurrects the very issue he
has been fleeing. The ad features a 'regular' Ontarian saying: "But this
faith-based school thing. I don't get it." Even the people in John Tory's
commercials think he has weak judgment.
