So John Tory has indicated that he will stay on as leader of the Ontario Conservatives. I'm not sure by what premises he reached this conclusion. Tory, sadly, has pretty much failed at everything he has ever done, at least going back for the last 15 years.

  • In 1993, Tory approved the heinous ad making fun of Jean Chretien's palsy, which played a large part in reducing the governing Conservatives to a pair of seats in Parliament.

  • After that, he became the CEO of Rogers Media and then Rogers Cable. The company grew significantly during this period, I will admit, but it grew into the inhuman behemoth that it is today.

  • Tory was commissioner of the CFL from 1996 to 2000, which was a time spent mostly worrying about whether the Ottawa Roughriders would play on the coming Friday night.

  • He then ran for mayor of Toronto in 2003 and lost. He did, however, win a by-election and became an MPP.

  • He then lost the recent provincial election and lost his own seat.

    At least he didn't own the Texas Rangers at any point.
