The Progressive Conservative Leader was asked to read aloud from the podium a letter to the crowd from Premier Dalton McGuinty.
Tory thought about the irony for a moment and agreed, reasoning he was the only MPP at the event.
He read the letter verbatim, even the stuff about what a great job the Liberals are doing, without blinking an eye.
Then he ad libbed a post script after reading McGuinty's salutation.
"P.S. John Tory's a great guy."
Tory sent a note to McGuinty in the Legislature the other day relating the tale.
"It was the only line that got any applause," Tory insisted to reporters. "I told him (McGuinty) he should try it more often."
