Drake getting key to the City of Toronto, says Mayor John Tory
After saying it’s the “highest honour” the city can give, Tory added, “I want these moments to inspire us as a city, and send a real message: Toronto can do great things.”
Tory posted a collection of tweets honouring Drake (whose real name is Aubrey Graham) and his commitment to bringing Toronto to the world stage. Here are a few of them:
As indicated in the tweets, Tory met with Drake recently, and the pair discussed Toronto’s music scene, inspiring the city’s youth and ensuring Toronto maintains its vibrance through the arts.
Of course, the bestowing of the key falls on the same night as the NBA All-Star Weekend begins, which is being held in Toronto. Drake has famously endorsed the Toronto Raptors here and abroad, so it’s only fitting that these events are culminating.
Started from the bottom, indeed.Follow @CJancelewicz
