Cole or Ford for mayor? We deserve better
Re Desmond Cole for mayor? Maybe, Oct. 12 The prospect of Desmond Cole’s candidacy for mayor would be a matter of a one-trick pony discovering that, should he be so unfortunate as to be elected, his narrow politics and inexperience in the practical aspects of public policy make him woefully unfit for the office.
To that degree, he would be for the left what Doug Ford will be for the right. If Rob Ford and Donald Trump have proven anything, it is that while the election of an inexperienced, bombastic hack might improve newspaper circulation, it is an expensive waste of time that does nothing for the common good. Toronto deserves better than either Cole or Ford. Adam Lynde, Toronto
