John Tory is an idiot.

But you already knew that, right?

Here's the money quote:
Progressive Conservative Leader John Tory said that while he also hopes Monday's and Tuesday's vote will resolve the impasse, McGuinty should take action to bring classes back.

"Mr. McGuinty should make it clear – and do it now – classes will be resuming at York University not later than Monday," Tory said.
The problem, as anyone who knows anything about the academy can tell you, is that the York Senate has to declare that and when classes can resume, in order to ensure academic integrity. And, depending on when the vote's results are known -- probably Tuesday night -- and the relevant back-to-work protocols, next Monday might be too soon for the Senate to pull everything together in time.

Not that Tory cares, of course. He's sufficiently blinded by his hatred of unions that he's no longer capable of talking sense or informing himself of the most basic facts. (There's a lot of that going around lately.) Must be nice to be able to insert yourself into the legislative process without all that tedious "winning an election" business.

Here's hoping Rick Johnson kicks his ass in the Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock byelection -- and that McGuinty strings him along for a while before calling it.
