Mayor John Tory is being investigated by the city’s integrity commission over his ties to Rogers Communications and a council vote on an ActiveTO issue.


It all stems from a complaint that Tory had a conflict of interest because of his ties to Rogers and a council vote to discontinue road closures on the Lakeshore.

The Mayor is a member of the Rogers Control Trust Advisory Committee and a shareholder in Rogers Communications.

The Toronto Blue Jays, which are owned by Rogers, complained the ActiveTO road closures made business operations difficult.

Toronto activist Adam Chaleff said in his conflict of interest complaint that Tory had an “indirect pecuniary interest” as the Blue Jays were owned by Rogers.

“In May 2022, City Council was asked to consider a proposal to revisit road closures along Lake Shore Boulevard as part of the ActiveTO program,” the complaint says.


“In June 2022, the Toronto Blue Jays made clear its opposition to ActiveTO road closures along Lake Shore Boulevard, citing the negative impact that road closures would have on the company’s business at the Rogers Centre.”

The city’s integrity commissioner acknowledges the investigation.

“As the fact of my investigation has been publicly disclosed, I will confirm that an investigation is underway. At the same time, however, I caution that I have reached no conclusion that the MCIA has been breached. I have no additional information to provide at this time,” Integrity Commissioner Johnathan Batty said in an email on Friday.

Mayor Tory’s office had little to say about the investigation.

“We respect the Integrity Commissioner and, as we said when the complaint was first announced, we won’t be making any further comment. The Mayor is fully cooperating with the integrity commissioner. Mayor Tory’s record on integrity speaks for itself,” said Lawvin Hadisi with the Office of the Mayor.
