Torontonians to Queen's Park: "Hands Off Our Election"

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 21, 2010) - Toronto mayoral candidate Rocco Rossi has issued the following statement in response to an article in today's Toronto Star suggesting increasing involvement in Toronto's mayoral election by political parties and politicians at Queen's Park.

"This election is about who will fight for Toronto, not who will best carry out orders from Queen's Park. I have assembled a coalition of support that will fight for Toronto regardless of who forms the government at Queen's Park.

"Toronto voters are not pawns on some Queen's Park chessboard. It is bad enough that we have never elected a Mayor who is not a City Hall insider or sitting councillor. The last thing Torontonians need is Queen's Park politicians interfering with our election.

"City Hall is not a Liberal, Conservative or NDP plaything. It's our City Hall, yours and mine, and it's time to return it to the people."
