“Yakabuski apologises for reference letter to supporter charged with sexual assault” by Joanne Chianello, quotes Toronto Lawyer, Guy Giorno, in an article about professional integrity in Yakabuski case.

"A public official never steps out of the role of public official," said Giorno, who was once chief of staff to former Conservative prime minister Stephen Harper. "You're never not the mayor, you're never not the MPP."

[Giorno] would not comment on specifics of any case, but said the circumstances for "stepping outside the role of one's position" and acting as an "individual" are fairly limited, and usually involve situations with immediate family members.
