Toronto Mayor Rob Ford opts against endorsement in Ontario election Add to ...

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford isn’t prepared to endorse any party in the Ontario election.

The mayor’s spokeswoman, Adrienne Batra, says the mayor hasn’t changed his position that he won’t be endorsing anyone right now.

The mayor has met with the leaders of the three major parties to discuss their plans for Toronto.

Conservative-minded Mr. Ford threw his support behind Prime Minister Stephen Harper just days before the federal vote in May.

When asked if Mr. Ford would make an eleventh hour endorsement, Ms. Batra said it’s not quite the eleventh hour yet. Voting day is next Thursday.

Ms. Batra maintains Mr. Ford’s decision not to make an endorsement has nothing to with recent polls suggesting his support is dropping.
