Our politicians lack class


This is about Missed Manners — an etiquette guide for politicians who just don’t seem to get it.

The urgent need for a rulebook became wildly apparent Monday, when Prince Harry was in town to promote his Invictus Games — a magnificent event that he created. Invictus is an international sporting event in which ill or wounded military personnel compete.

Toronto Mayor John Tory deserves a slap on the wrist for wearing a “We The North” jacket. What was he thinking?

Look, I understand the Raptors won a big game the night before, but he was at the launch of an event celebrating amateur athletes who’ve suffered horrific injuries in service to their country.

I’m sure Tory wanted to look like the cool guy, but it’s just wrong to show up at the Mattamy Athletic Centre wearing branding for a group of high-priced, professional athletes. The contrast between the Raptors and these guys couldn’t have been more stark.
