From city councillor to commissioner of the Canadian Football League?

Speaking with John Moore on Newstalk 1010's Moore in the Morning Friday, Karen Stintz said while there is no offer on the table, the league's top job is one she would "love to have."

Stintz abandoned her bid for mayor of Toronto on Thursday. Current CFL commissioner Mark Cohon revealed this week, he will leave his post when his contract expires in April.

"I've always thought the CFL was an amazing institution for the country, it's a real unifier." Stintz said Friday. With the Toronto Argonauts deal to play at the Rogers Centre set to expire at the end of 2017, Stintz feels it is important to keep the team downtown.

Stintz says she opted not to throw her support behind another mayoral candidate, believing it would leave her staff more free to join another campaign. But she will not rule out the possibility of publicly endorsing someone before election day.

Stintz says she will not run for city council again and will not pursue a seat at the provincial or federal level either.

For now though, Stintz's immediate plans are getting through next week's city council meeting and preparing her kids for back-to-school. She has also agreed to be a regular guest on Moore in the Morning roundtables.

    Her actions as a councillor would suggest she wouldn't be a good candidate, considering the frequency with which she blows with the wind rather than taking a firm stance. The CFL doesn't need someone like that.
