Toronto's Mayors from Muddy York to Megacity

Long-time NTHS member Frank Nicholson will take us on a tour of our city’s history from 1834 as seen through the eyes of around ten of our 65 chief magistrates. He will include William Lyon Mackenzie (our first mayor), W.H. Boulton (the last Family Compact mayor), Tommy Church (the “Father of the TTC”), Leslie Saunders  (an Orange Order militant), Nathan Phillips (the “Mayor of All the People”) and David Crombie (our “Tiny Perfect Mayor”).
