The Mayor of Toronto, John Tory, has stepped down after acknowledging he had an affair with former staff.
The Mayor announced during a recent news conference that he developed a relationship with an employee in his office.
After Toronto Star reported the affair, Tory said: “I recognize that permitting this relationship to develop was a serious error in judgment on my part.
“It came at a time when Barb, my wife of 40-plus years and I were enduring many lengthy periods apart while I carried out my responsibilities during the pandemic.
“As a result, I have decided I will step down as mayor so I can take the time to reflect on my mistakes and to do the work of rebuilding the trust of my family.”
Tory was first elected as Mayor in 2014, on a promise to restore respectability to the office after the rough term of Rob Ford. He recently won a third term.
