Statement from Mayor David Miller on the death of Chris Tonks
“Chris Tonks was a dedicated politician who gave 40 years of his life to serving residents of the former township, borough and city of York and to citizens of Metropolitan Toronto as a Councillor, Deputy Reeve and Reeve.

“As an honorary member of the Royal Canadian Legion, a lifetime member of the Toronto Region Conservation Authority and an active supporter of the York Lions Club for more than four decades, Mr. Tonks was as committed to his community personally as he was professionally.

“His devotion serves as an inspiration to all.

“On behalf of all Torontonians, I extend condolences to his wife Anna, sons Alan and Tom, and his extended family and friends at this difficult time.”
