John Tory now has become the new Mayor for the city of Toronto, the largest city in the country of Canada. Mr. Tory had been fighting against the infamous Rob Ford for the first half of their campaign only to then find out that Rob Ford had cancer and would pull out of the race. Mr. Tory thought he had it in the bag only to then find out that Doug Ford, the younger brother of Rob Ford would be entering the race for Mayor. Unfortunately Doug Ford lost his Mayoral Campaign but his older brother Rob Ford won his seat back on council.

John Tory has openly said that he is beyond surprised that he won this election as he thought that those who backed up Rob Ford would also back up Doug Ford with their vote. Luckily the citizens of Toronto realized that John Tory has a considerable more amount of experience as a elected official and would do a superior job at running Toronto than Doug Ford could do so.

Analysts say that there could be major tension in the Toronto Chambers as Rob Ford can be a loose cannon. Though Rob Ford has always stayed professional in the past as a Mayor & Councilmen. He allowed for Toronto to grow and saved them millions throughout his terms. Mr. Ford knows how to differ himself between his work life and personal life, something many people seem to forget. We suspect that Mr. Tory & Mr. Ford will work alongside one another to better the city of Toronto that much more.

Last month there was a viral trend floating around the entire world called the “ALS Ice Bucket Challenge“. Essentially people would have to freeze a large bucket of water, then place ice into that bucket of water and let the ice melt. Those who did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge would then pour that water down upon themselves to understand what it would feel like to have ALS, to have zero control on moving your body. Those who wished to not perform the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge would then have to donate a minimum of $10.

This viral trend brought more awareness to ALS then anyone thought would ever happen. Millions of young adults and adults from Northern America, Europe and Asia did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Millions of other young adults & adults donated the minimum amount of $10. Millions upon millions of dollars were put towards ALS Research.

This means that now people know about one of the worst diseases known to the human body and that millions of dollars has been raised for ALS Research. This viral trend could of very well lead to finding a way to cure ALS in the future. Still to this day the “ALS Foundation” is receiving large donations and people are continuing to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. It just goes to show that the internet can be a powerful movement that can change the lives of people all around the world.
