No way Tory runs for the leadership. He's a shoe in for winning re-election as mayor. Why jeopardize a second term with the prospects of sitting in the opposition benches?

This smacks of drumming up fake enthusiasm by the PCPO and Tory's mayoral election team. Tory would be nuts to walk away from a second term.

That’s the thing, 1 more term vs if got the PC spot possibly 2 more terms, plus he can re write his history from always loosing to not only becoming mayor of Toronto but premier of Ontario. How many can say that?

So, the same guy who helped run the far right Rebel Media is on Mulroney's campaign.

Also, Tory confirmed that he is sticking to municipal politics.

Who? I'm assuming you don't mean Levant as you said "helped run" as opposed to "is".

Interesting. Is he the bloke who left Rebel Media because he found it to have gone too far in some of its editorialising?

This is bad... report filed with Ottawa police in 2014.

Rick Dykstra quit as Ontario PC Party president after Maclean’s questioned him about a woman’s accusation that he sexually assaulted her in 2014—an allegation the federal Conservatives knew about when they let him run in the 2015 election.

I have to question why any serious political party let itself be played by a group of guys who were in their late 20s or older and referred to themselves as "frat boys".

That's what we call man-child behaviour.

You are thinking of Brian Lilley. Marshall was part of the Rebel's founding, though I have seen people defend him as someone who had no input into the actual content that was published.
