Bill Blair Two high-profile shootings incidents this summer have changed everything for the top cop, despite an enviable crime-fighting record.
Rob Ford Blair was never his choice for chief, but the party-like-a-rock-star mayor may have one too many skeletons in the closet to win a popularity contest vs the chief.
Michael Thompson The Police Services Board vice-chair and Ford's designated shit disturber on the cop file has had it in for Blair ever since Thompson was left swinging in the breeze over a budget fight with the cops in the early days of the present administration.
Chin Lee The manoeuvring has begun in the mayor's office to remove the Blair-friendly Scarborough councillor from the PSB. Question is, does a politically weakened mayor have the council votes to unseat Lee?
Mike McCormack The Toronto police union head owes Ford big time for that whopper of a raise given rank-and-file officers in the last round of contract talks, but he's been singing from a different hymn book than the mayor in the wake of a hiring freeze that's raised safety concerns among officers.
Peter Sloly Amid charges of racial profiling, Blair's deputy in charge of divisional command, and the force's highest-ranking black officer, was tasked with selling the department's summer buildup in priority neighbourhoods after the Danzig Street shooting spree.
Alok Mukherjee Before they lost their seats on the PSB, Miller progressives did some procedural dipsy-doodling to keep Mukherjee in the chair and provide stability on the policing file. But he's lost control of the agenda to Thompson in the wake of questions about board oversight during the G20 mess.
