Description

The first-ever look at all sixty-five Toronto mayors — the good, the bad, the colourful, the rogues, and the leaders — who have shaped the city.

Spanning eighteen decades and the growth of Toronto, from its origins as a dusty colonial outpost of just 9,600 residents to a metropolis of three million, this compendium provides fascinating biographical detail on each of the city’s mayors.

From the first — the firebrand rebel William Lyon Mackenzie — to those of the twenty-first century — David Miller, Rob Ford, and John Tory — Toronto Mayors looks at where each came from, how they came to lead the city, what issues they dealt with, and how they steered Toronto’s city council.
