Days before a recent fact-finding trip to London, England, John Tory triumphantly declared Toronto open for business. During the 2014 municipal election, Tory secured the backing of a long list of Bay Street titans, including Gord Nixon and Blake Goldring. He’s pledging to make Canada’s largest city even more appealing for business, curb gridlock and promote Toronto as a startup hub. It’s like the Ford years never happened.
