The Empire Club of Canada Presents:
His Worship Mayor John Tory, Mayor for the City of Toronto With The Future of the Gardiner Expressway
Toronto Mayor John Tory will outline his vision for the future of the eastern portion of the Gardiner Expressway and the impact on traffic, economic development and the need to build a truly great city. This historical decision will be debated and voted on just days after the Mayor’s address at the Empire Club of Canada. The Gardiner Expressway has been debated for decades by past Councils and now is the time to make a decision on how we can continue to build a livable city for everyone. Biography: John Tory is the 65th Mayor of Toronto. Born and raised in Toronto, Mayor Tory has spent his career promoting and giving back to the city he loves. He has an extensive background in volunteer community service and his community work has been widely recognized. As a lawyer, talk show host, businessman, Member of Provincial Parliament and Leader of the Official Opposition at Queen’s Park, and now as Mayor, he has long believed that the diversity of Toronto is our greatest strength. As Mayor, his focus is on bringing the city together as One Toronto alongside tackling transit and traffic congestion.
