Toronto Mayor John Tory and City staff hosted the fifth annual Mayor’s School Cricket Tournament finals at Sunnybrook Park last weekend.
“The Mayor’s School Cricket Tournament brings out the top young players in Toronto for a fun-filled day of competitive matches,” said Tory.
“Cricket is becoming one of the fastest growing sports in our city and its popularity transcends culture and community,” the mayor added. “I’d like to acknowledge CIMA and CIBC for their efforts in growing the sport in Toronto and investing in the well-being of our youth.”
Among the many other enthusiastic spectators were Martin Saxton, Chair of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) in Canada, Keith Adamson General Manager CIBC and Tony Velaidum Vice President Operational Finance, Canadian Tire Corp.
