From Apply Liberally, John Tory on Conservative candidate Randy Hillier:
JOHN TORY: I'll be very truthful with you about that. No double-speak. They’re all vetted to see if there is anything in their background in terms of brushes with the law or any of those kinds of things that would disqualify them form being a candidate it's done before the nomination process so that you don't, it's not too late and we looked at his entire background and I can tell you this man has had no brushes with the law.
CALLER: Whoa, back up. Back up. He's been incarcerated before.
JOHN TORY: Look at that, if that is true, I'm not familiar with that but I mean I can tell you there was a check on his background. What was he incarcerated for?
Apparently, the background check didn't involve spending 0.38 seconds to run the terms "Randy Hillier arrested" through Google and having someone read the results.
However, it is nice to see Mr. Tory willing to take a hard line. Apparently, he "mentioned over the phone" to Mr. Hillier that the law should apply to everyone when Randy was out there blocking traffic on the 401.
