Toronto council to meet for first time since John Tory resigned

Canada Global (Web News) This will mark the first time Toronto City Council has convened since the resignation of former mayor John Tory.

After admitting to having a “inappropriate affair” with a former member of his staff, Tory resigned last month.

The official declaration of the mayor’s office as empty and the adoption of a bylaw mandating a byelection are two topics that councillors will be discussing during their three-day meeting.

By doing that, the city would be one step closer to choosing a new mayor.

Voters are anticipated to cast their ballots in the election to succeed Tory on June 26, according to a schedule already established by the city clerk, but council approval is required.

Nominations for the mayor’s position would likely start on April 3 and end on May 12, with early voting being possible from June 8 to June 13, when council approves a bylaw requiring a byelection.
