Toronto Mayor John Tory has acted as a conduit for the family of Barry and Honey Sherman, telling police that relatives are upset with how the service has communicated information about the billionaire couple's deaths.
A spokesman for the mayor confirmed that Mr. Tory has spoken several times to the Shermans' relatives, both by phone and at last week's memorial service, where the mayor delivered remarks. Don Peat said in an e-mail that it was normal for Mr. Tory to reach out to the families of people who suffer violence in the city.
The article also mentions that Ontario Health Minister Eric Hoskins tweeted condolences that identified the couple yet that information had not even been made public by the police. 'On Wednesday, a spokeswoman for the minister would not explain how he got that information'.
