This morning, Warren Kinsella clarified what it was about David Miller's victory speech that so ticked him off.
Now, Warren seemed to think that some of these comments were meant to be in reference to John Tory. To me, that's crazy. In fact, I don't think anybody else at our party or anybody watching on TV would have heard them that way either.
Cleaning up City Hall was a theme in this election before it even started -- not just in David Miller's campaign, but across the board. Why else would John Tory have made such a firm point about his "Plan to Restore Trust in Government".
Frankly, I think David's speech would have been essentially the same, even if John Tory hadn't run this year. These comments were, in my view, clearly made in reference to the previous administration -- justifiably so -- and not the recent competition.
Anyway, Warren Kinsella is entitled to feel that his guy was better, and he's entitled to his opinion that the city has made a choice that it may regret. I don't even mind so much that he thinks Barbara Hall's support simply vanished into thin air, but gives no credit to the Miller campaign whatsoever. I was offended by his remarks yesterday, but feel a bit better now that I know Warren was wrong... even if he doesn't know it yet.
