As John Tory began his last day as the Mayor of Toronto on Friday as he decided to step down after admitting to having a relationship with a former staffer last Friday, his day was met with a rough start as someone threw eggs at his office window, according to media reports.

The incident occurred at around 6:20 a.m. early in the morning when Tory was present in the office reading the newspaper. The windows of the Mayor’s office, which overlooks Nathan Phillips Square, were subject to eggs being thrown by an unidentified individual, media reports add.

Two of the eggs thrown at the office reportedly landed on the windows while another ended up between the doors of the office.

In visuals of the incident since circulated on social media, Tory can be seen looking up after noticing the eggs momentarily, before directing his attention to the newspaper again.

The police are aware of the incident and a probe into the egging is underway, media outlets report.
