Toronto Mayor John Tory said he hopes everyone is “safe” and that they “have a good time.”

“And that everybody engages in responsible behavior,” he said. “Because we’ve seen a bit of partying that gets out of hand and you know, that spoils it for everybody, and I just hope that that doesn’t happen again.”

“I think most people have got that message and certainly our wonderful police are going to help us with that,” he continued.
