Cole or Ford for mayor? We de­serve bet­ter

Toronto Star - - NEWS -

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
