He’s hiding his face … in shame. Toronto Mayor John Tory has apologized after photos of the civic leader displaying questionable social distancing etiquette at a packed Trinity Bellwoods Park on Saturday caused an uproar on social media. “I fully intended to properly physically distance but it was very difficult to do,” he wrote in a statement issued Sunday evening. “I wore a mask into the park but I failed to use it properly, another thing I’m disappointed about. “These were mistakes that I made and as a leader in this city, I know that I must set a better example going forward.”
