article imageOutgoing Toronto mayor Miller signs his book 'Witness to a City' Special

By Andrew Moran     Nov 28, 2010 in Politics
Toronto - Toronto mayor David Miller will leave office in a couple of days after serving the public for seven years, or two terms. Miller signed copies of his latest book "Witness to a City" at the Eaton Centre's Indigo bookstore.
The 63rd mayor of Toronto, David Miller, says goodbye to the city of Toronto this week when he steps down and “Red Tory” 10-year city councillor Rob Ford takes the reins as mayor. The Etobicoke councillor, who ran on a platform of “ending the gravy train,” was victorious in last month’s municipal election.
Miller told Metro newspaper this week that he plans to take a long vacation at the end of his tenure. Next year, Miller will take a position with the World Bank as an advisor on urban issues.
On Sunday, the mayor signed copies of his latest book, “Witness to a City.” The book is not about Miller’s life but a book through the eyes of Toronto residents that will profile various members of the city.

The book was co-authored by Doug Arrowsmith and the photographs were published by Jeff Davidson. Proceeds from the sales will go directly to the Mrs. Joan Miller scholarships, which is a charity he established in his mother’s name.
Although the crowd was quite small at the Eaton Centre Indigo bookstore, purchasers of Miller’s book were enthusiastic about meeting the mayor of Toronto.
One gentleman, who dressed in the colors of the Canadian flag, asked Miller to sign his book and several newspaper clippings. The individual was also at the Old City Hall Remembrance Day ceremony earlier this month draped in Canadian colours and even provided a wreath in honour of the fallen.
Even though Miller announced repeatedly that he would not seek a third-term during the municipal election, polls showed that the former Ward-19 city councillor would have won.
