Political chess move
There were no “game changing” moments in the Citytv debate Sunday night; however, John Tory and I exchanged an observation after I asked both Joe Pantalone and Rocco Rossi if there were any circumstances under which they would consider dropping out of the race?
Their answers were no, and then Pantalone went on to portray George Smitherman as a “mini Ford,” asking why anyone would vote for him when they had the real deal to consider. It was a shrewd inside move to remind all unions and other anti-Ford people that he is the only alternative.
