The Mayor says sorry

Trinity Bellwoods

Mayor John Tory has apologized for not properly wearing a mask or social distancing while he visited Trinity Bellwoods Park on Saturday.

Photos on social media showed the mayor with his mask pulled down under his chin.

 

In a statement released Sunday, Tory said, "I want to apologize for my personal behaviour yesterday. I visited Trinity Bellwoods Park to try to determine why things were the way they were.

I fully intended to properly physically distance but it was very difficult to do. I wore a mask into the park but I failed to use it properly, another thing I'm disappointed about.

These were mistakes that I made and as a leader in this city, I know that I must set a better example going forward."

As many as 10,000 jammed into Trinity Bellwoods Park Saturday, ignoring physical distancing rules.

NEWSTALK 1010 has learned that only 4 tickets were issued at the park.
