In his annual speech to the Toronto Region Board of Trade, John Tory detailed the five cornerstones of the recovery plan; announcing he’ll be convening a panel of accomplished local leaders to provide real-time advice as the reopening from the pandemic continues.
Those cornerstones are the need — to rebuild — to attract news businesses and talent; while encouraging the expansion of existing businesses — to support businesses; especially small ones — to grow and support growth of Toronto’s film industry , and also to be ready to embrace the future.
”I am so committed to making sure Toronto’s economy comes back stronger than ever and that will be my focus in the weeks and months ahead,” said Tory.
”There are challenges in front of us but I am excited about all of this because I am confident Toronto’s best days are ahead. Toronto was booming before the pandemic and I know we can ensure that success and that progress continue.”
The mayor outlined among the extremely important issues to be examined by the panel will be the future of work.
