MEET THE MATILDAS

Mayoral Edition

 

The Matildas wet to Toronto City Hall to meet with Mayor John Tory

 

Mayor John Tory

 

>>John Tory: I’m going to apologize to you because my desk is looking a little messy this morning. That’s just because I didn’t have time to tidy it up. I knew you were coming, but I was out.

 

What would Matilda do if she became mayor?

 

Jenna Weir

 

Jaime MacLean

 

Hannah Levinson

 

>>Jaime MacLean: She would make the other people more confident and say that they would make everyone stand up for themselves.

 

>>Hannah Levinson: She’d probably make sure that everyone is nice to people and make sure that no one is against reading.

 

>>Jenna Weir: She’d build more libraries.

 

>>Hannah Levinson: Yes.

 

>>John Tory: How do you like living here in Toronto?

 

>>Jaime MacLean: It’s good.

 

>>John Tory: No, it could be better than that. I think you should say it’s really, really fantastic.

 

>>Jaime MacLean: It’s amazing!

 

What would you do if you became mayor?

 

>>Jenna Weir: I’d try and make the world a better place, or Toronto, at least.

 

>>Jaime MacLean: I would make sure that everyone’s happy and everyone has what they want.

 

>>Hannah Levinson: I would teach little girls to make sure that they’re very brave and always determined and they never doubt themselves.

 

>> Voice off camera: Do you girls want to show the mayor how to do a Matilda pose?

 

>> All: Yes!

 

>> Jaime MacLean: Matilda pose!

 

>> Hannah Levinson: You just step out with your right leg.

 

>> John Tory: My right leg.

 

>> Jaime MacLean: And then look up!

 

>> Hannah Levinson: And put your feet like this second.

 

>> John Tory: Like this?

 

>> Hannah Levinson: No. Like with feet.

 

>> John Tory: Oh, with my two feet, ok, yes.

 

>>Jaime MacLean: Hands on your hips.

 

>> John Tory: Ok.

 

>> Hannah Levinson: Look up to-

 

>> John Tory: Look up there, ok.

 

[music]

 

>> John Tory: We’ve got a little present for each of the three of you from Toronto. So you can each have that.

 

>> Hannah Levinson: Thank you.

 

I know you’re from Toronto.

 

>> Jenna Weir: Thank you.

 

>> Jaime MacLean: Thank you.

 

>> John Tory: You’ve got to take this back to Vancouver and just tell them this is the greatest place you’ve ever lived.

 

>> Hannah Levinson: This is for you.

 

>> John Tory: Thank you very much.

 

>> Hannah Levinson: And we gave you an “M” pin for being the mayor.

 

>> John Tory: M for mayor and M for Matilda. That’s excellent. Thank you very much.

 

>> Jaime MacLean: It’s a speaker?!

 

>> Jenna Weir: It’s a Toronto speaker!

 

>> Hannah Levinson: This is so cool.

 

>> Jenna Weir: This is awesome!

 

>> Jaime MacLean: What?! Oh my goodness!
