In politics, pundits and analysts like to give elected officials arbitrary milestones.
Sometimes, during an election campaign, politicians will promise change within 100 days; often the media will put out report cards at the end of that period.
So, what can Toronto mayor-elect John Tory accomplish in his first 100 days in office?
In a victory speech on Monday, after beating out Doug Ford and Olivia Chow to earn the right to be the 65th mayor of Canada’s largest city, John Tory foreshadowed some of his first steps.
"Tonight, voters have sent a message that is abundantly clear. Voters want their elected officials to get down to work on the priorities that matter most to them," he said.
"Better transit, more jobs, an end to the gridlock that is choking our streets.
"And the electorate has spoken on one other issue: Torontonians want to see an end to the division that has paralyzed city hall in the last few years."
