John Tory is making it very clear that he is not Rob Ford and that he s not going to do thing the same way.
Tory is turning down an offer to go on Jimmy Kimmel’s late night TV show:
During a television interview, Tory said he was invited to appear on the Jimmy Kimmel Show but declined.
Tory said the idea of appearing on a late night show seems inappropriate.
“Let’s talk why am I there,” Tory said.
“I’m there because the previous guy was the subject of jokes and all the sort of stuff and they’ll probably replay old tapes. I just don’t think we need to be repeating that.
“I’m not in show business. I’m in the business of getting results for people and trying to build our reputation up.”
Ford appeared on the show earlier this year after Kimmel spent months poking fun following his admission to smoking crack:
Would like to see John Tory on late night with Jimmy Kimmel? Do you think Tory is right in saying an appearance on the show wouldn’t be appropriate? Or with the world’s eyes on Toronto after Rob Ford’s previous indiscretions, would it be good for our new mayor to set a new public image for the city?
