Mayor Of Toronto Awards Drake With The Key To The City


Drake will be receiving the key to his hometown tomorrow.

Tomorrow, John Tory, the current mayor of Toronto, will present Drake with the key to the city. He made the announcement today via a video post on Twitter, in which he explained why the OVO rapper is worthy of “the highest honor we can give.” 

Tomorrow I’ll give out the Key to the City. This is why. @Drake

“When we give out the key to the city, we want it to be something really special,” Tory said to begin his announcement.

“I believe the key should go to individuals who make people across the city feel good about themselves and about their city. It should make us proud of who we are and what we can achieve. I want these moments to inspire us, as a city, and to send a real message: Toronto can do great things.” 

Clearly the mayor believes Drake has instilled the above message within his fellow Torontonians, as does Toronto city councillor Norm Kelly, who has become something of an Twitter celebrity with his meme-ready support of Drake (and rampant agitation of Meek). 

Congrats, @Drake! No Torontonian is more deserving.

Congratulations to Drake. He’s already anointed himself the “6 God,” and clearly, Toronto’s politicians are treating him as such.
