Summary/Review: "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--Mel Lastman, 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."--
