Fireside Chat with Toronto Mayor John Tory

ULI Toronto is hosting its seventh annual Fireside Chat with John Tory, Toronto’s 65th Mayor, on Wednesday, March 4, 2015 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at the Toronto Region Board of Trade.

The Fireside Chat program has become one of the land-use community’s most anticipated and well attended events. Enjoy an intimate evening with Toronto’s new mayor in conversation with John Duffy, Principal, StrategyCorp—a celebration of family, business and city-building.

Born and raised in Toronto, Mayor Tory has spent his career promoting and giving back to the city he loves. As a lawyer, talk-show host, businessman, Member of Provincial Parliament and Leader of the Official Opposition at Queen’s Park, and finally as Mayor, he has long believed that the diversity of Toronto is its strength. As Mayor, John’s focus will be on bringing the city together as One Toronto.

The early years of Mayor Tory’s career were spent practicing law in Toronto, and he was later elected as a managing partner of one of Canada’s biggest law firms. In the 1980s he served as Principal Secretary to Premier Bill Davis and as Associate Secretary of the Ontario Cabinet. In September 2004, Mayor Tory was elected leader of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario. In 2005, as PC Party Leader, Mayor Tory would serve as the Leader of the Official Opposition at Queen’s Park.

Registration and networking takes place from 5:30pm – 6:00pm, followed by the discussion until 7:10pm and a Q&A session until 7:30pm. The Toronto Region Board of Trade is located at 77 Adelaide Street West.
