Toronto City Councillor Mike Layton tied the knot with fiancée Brett Tryon on Toronto Island on Saturday.
“A beautiful day for a wedding,” the councillor for Ward 19, Trinity-Spadina tweeted. “I’m looking forward to sharing the day with family, friends and most important, my sweetheart.”
Tryon is a co-ordinator with Environmental Defence, where Layton used to work. The couple has been engaged since early 2010.
The wedding comes a year after the death of Mike Layton’s father, NDP leader Jack Layton.
“He’ll be missed and I know that we’ll be thinking of him,” Mike Layton told the CBC last week. “He’ll be there in one form or another and he’ll be in our thoughts for sure.”
The wedding took place on Toronto Island, near the site where Olivia Chow and Jack Layton exchanged vows in 1988.–councillor-mike-layton-…
