Jennifer McKelvie to take over as Toronto’s Mayor
by The Canadian Parvasi
At an abruptly called press conference in city hall Friday night, Toronto Mayor John Tory announced his intention to step down from the position after admitting to having a relationship with a staffer. While the mayor has yet to formally resign, Tory has stated that the process is to begin in “the coming days.”
According to The City of Toronto Act, which details provisions for when a mayor decides to step down, Deputy Mayor Jennifer McKelvie is to hold office for now, until a byelection is scheduled for the position.
