Toronto’s mayor raised a few eyebrows this week after comments about mask-wearing in the age of COVID-19. On Wednesday, Mayor John Tory welcomed the about-face by public health on wearing face masks to slow COVID-19 spread, and chastised men for their apparent refusal to follow suit. “There’s been some coverage lately that men in particular don’t want to wear masks or face coverings for a variety of reasons, but including one that says that they see it somehow as a sign of weakness,” he said.
