Toronto Mayor John Tory resigns as mayor, admits affair with staffer
Toronto Mayor John Tory has admitted that he had an affair with a staffer, and will step down as the mayor of the largest city in Canada.
On Friday night, Tory spoke to reporters at Toronto city hall, and confessed he had a relationship with a staff member “in a way that did not meet the standards to which I hold myself as mayor and as a family man.”
“I recognize that permitting this relationship to develop was a serious error in judgement on my part,” Tory said.
“I’m deeply sorry, and I apologize unreservedly to the people of Toronto and all those hurt by my actions.”
“Most of all I apologize to my wife Barb and my family, who I’ve let down, more than anyone else.”
