John Best was also the vice-president of news for CHCH-TV from 1982 to 1996.

In 2010, he was part of the "Sprawl for Y'all" bunch (CHCH-TV, CHML, Braley, Foxcroft, Young, Mitchell, Kelly, etc.) who made the west harbour stadium plan an election issue and get Bob Bratina elected as mayor. But their obstructionism burned up too much time for new mayor Bratina to get Bob Young a stadium with a 60 acre parking lot on the east mountain eramosa karst or at Confederation Park so Bratina and Young dropped the new stadium back onto the old Ivor Wynne Stadium site and created the mess we have now.

In 2014, Best and the same bunch seems to be using the same formula to make LRT the main election issue to get Brad Clark elected. The public pitch is "BRT vs. LRT". But is the private goal to kill LRT and spend $300 to $500 million to spend on airport district development?
