Will John Tory’s ‘prudent’ leadership be tough enough to tackle Toronto’s big issues if he’s re-elected?

“I will not be a Conservative leader who will be a liar and a cheat,” he said.

Tory said that he’s not a fan of the Conservative Party’s current leader, Michael Ignatieff, but it’s clear that he believes in him. He even said that although Ignatieff would be a good leader
