Duly Quoted: John Tory, on Kan-eh West

John Tory is confused about Kanye West.

“I’m smart enough to know that he’s a proud product of our music industry here, as are a number of others.”

—Mayor John Tory reacts to the news that Kanye West will be the headline performer at the closing ceremonies for the Pan Am Games. Tory was then informed that West is not, in fact, Canadian. Tory then said that he wished he had known West was American, but added he can’t know everything.
