Eggleton, an accountant by profession, was first elected to Toronto City Council in the 1969 municipal election as the junior alderman for Ward 4, he served as budget chief in the council elected in 1973 under David Crombie. He was the Liberal Party of Canada's candidate in the October 16, 1978 federal by-election held in Toronto's west-end Parkdale electoral district in which he was defeated by Progressive Conservative candidate Yuri Shymko, he ran for reelection to Toronto City Council in Ward 4. Finishing first amongst a field of 10 candidates to become Ward 4's senior alderman on council. Eggleton served the city of Toronto as a member of Toronto City Council and the Metropolitan Toronto Council for 22 years.

He was Mayor of Toronto from 1980 until 1991, when he retired from municipal politics as the longest-serving mayor in Toronto history. In 1980, he was elected Mayor of Toronto after defeating incumbent John Sewell. During Eggleton's time as Mayor, the City moved forward on implementing its new official plan which resulted in several new significant buildings in the downtown west, or railway lands area – the Convention Centre, SkyDome, the CBC Broadcast Centre, to name a few; the City administration under his leadership produced a record level of social housing projects for low income people. Art Eggleton established the Mayor's Committee on Community and Race Relations to help bring about the successful integration of people from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds; as mayor he supported human rights including gay rights, but did not attend the city's annual Gay Pride Parade as mayor. At the time, he did not see the parade as the usual kind of event appropriate for a mayor's official declaration.

Eggleton has attended the parade several times as a member of federal government. In 2011, Eggleton's expressed support for the Pride Parade, urging Mayor Rob Ford to attendEggleton was outvoted by his fellow council members in 1991, his last year in office. In 1985, he withstood a challenge from city councillor Anne Johnston, a fellow Liberal, who ran against Eggleton for the mayoralty in that year's civic election. In recognition of his service to the City, Mr. Eggleton received Toronto's highest honour, the Civic Award of Merit in 1992. Eggleton ran in the 1993 election in the suburban Toronto riding of York Centre, again as a Liberal, won election, he was appointed to the position of President of the Treasury Board and Minister for Infrastructure in the new cabinet. From January 1996 to June 1997, he served as Minister for International Trade. Eggleton retained his seat in the 1997 election, was appointed Minister of National Defence. In 1999, Eggleton supported Canada's involvement in NATO's campaign in Kosovo.

He was re-elected again in the 2000 election, continued as Minister of Defence, focusing on sweeping changes to the National Defence Act which implemented changes to the military justice system, including the set up of several oversight entities including a Military Ombudsman and a Military Police Complaints Commission. He improved compensation and benefits for Canadian Forces personnel and their families. In January 2002, Chrétien and Eggleton were accused of misleading Parliament. Both Chrétien and Eggleton when asked in Question Period if Canadian troops had handed over captured Taliban and al-Qaeda members in Afghanistan to the American forces amid concerns about the treatment of POWs at Guantanamo Bay, replied, in Chrétien's words only a "hypothetical question" and that the Canadians had taken no POWs. Critics of the government such as Joe Clark proceeded to point out that in the previous week, the Toronto newspaper the Globe & Mail had run on its frontpage a photo of Canadian soldiers turning over POWs to American troops.

Eggleton maintained that he and the rest of the Cabinet had been kept unaware that the Canadian Forces were taking POWs in Afghanistan and turning them over to the Americans, claiming that he had only learned of the policy of handing over POWs several days after the photo had appeared in the Globe & Mail. Eggleton resigned from the cabinet in May 2002, amid allegations he hired a former girlfriend for a research contract; the ethics commissioner, Howard Wilson, concluded Eggleton breached conflict guidelines for cabinet ministers, Eggleton voluntarily stepped down. This happened during the growing leadership turmoil between Prime Minister Jean Chrétien and Paul Martin, who left the cabinet the following week in disputed circumstances. Increased scrutiny on Chrétien's government and cabinet may have contributed to Prime Minister Jean Chrétien pressuring him to resign. Eggleton became a member of the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade. On May 13, 2004, Eggleton announced he would not be a candidate in the 2004 federal election, making way for the nomination of Ken Dryden as the Liberal candidate in York Centre.

Jean-Baptiste Greuze

Jean-Baptiste Greuze was a French painter of portraits, genre scenes, history painting. Greuze was born at a market town in Burgundy, he is said to have formed his own talent. Grandon not only persuaded Greuze's father to give way to his son's wishes, permit the boy to accompany him as his pupil to Lyon, when at a date he-himself left Lyon for Paris, Grandon carried young Greuze with him. Settled in Paris, Greuze worked from the living model in the school of the Royal Academy, but did not attract the attention of his teachers. By other and more remarkable works of the same class Greuze soon established his claims beyond contest, won the notice and support of the well-known connoisseur La Live de Jully, the brother-in-law of Madame d'Epinay. In 1755 Greuze exhibited his Aveugle trompé, upon which, presented by Pigalle the sculptor, he was agréé by the Academy. Towards the close of the same year he left France for Italy, in company with the Abbé Louis Gougenot. Gougenot had some acquaintance with the arts, was valued by the Academicians, during his journey with Greuze, elected him an honorary member of their body on account of his studies in mythology and allegory.

He had undertaken it in order to silence those who taxed him with ignorance of great models of style, but the Italian subjects which formed the entirety of his contributions to the Salon of 1757 showed that he had been put on a false track, he speedily returned to the source of his first inspiration. In 1759, 1761 and 1763 Greuze exhibited with ever-increasing success. In that year he was represented with at least thirteen works, amongst which may be cited La Jeune Fille qui pleure son oiseau mort, La Bonne Mère, Le Mauvais fils puni and La Malediction paternelle; the Academy took occasion to press Greuze for his diploma picture, the execution of, long delayed, forbade him to exhibit on their walls until he had complied with their regulations. "I have read the letter," said Diderot, "which is a model of honesty and reverence. Greuze wished to be received as a historical painter, produced a work which he intended to vindicate his right to despise his qualifications as a genre artist; this unfortunate canvas was exhibited in 1769 side by side with Greuze's portrait of Jeaurat and his admirable Petite Fille au chien noir.

The Academicians received their new member with all due honours, but at the close of the ceremonies the Director addressed Greuze in these words: "Sir, the Academy has accepted you, but only as a genre painter. Greuze incensed, quarrelled with his confreres, ceased to exhibit until, in 1804, the Revolution had thrown open the doors of the Academy to all the world. In the following year, on 4 March 1805, he died in the Louvre in great poverty, he had been in receipt of considerable wealth, which he had dissipated by extravagance and bad management, so that during his closing years he was forced to solicit commissions which his enfeebled powers no longer enabled him to carry out with success. "At the funeral of the long neglected old man, a young woman veiled and overcome with emotion plainly visible through her veil, laid upon the coffin, just before its removal, a bouquet of immortelles and withdrew to her devotions. Around the stem was a paper inscribed: "These flowers offered by the most grateful of his students are emblems of his glory.

It was Mlle Mayer the friend of Prudhon."The brilliant reputation which Greuze acquired seems to have been due, not to his accomplishments as a painter – for his practice is evidently that current in his own day – but to the character of the subjects which he treated. That return to nature which inspired Rousseau's attacks upon an artificial civilization demanded expression in art. Diderot, in Le Fils naturel and Père de famille, tried to turn the vein of domestic drama to account on the stage; the touch of melodramatic exaggeration, which runs through them finds an apology in the firm and brilliant play of line, in the freshness and vigour of the flesh tints, in the enticing softness of expression, by the alluring air of health and youth, by the sensuous attractions, in short, with which Greuze invests his lessons of bourgeois morality. La Jeune Fille à l'agneau was bought at the Pourtal's sale in 1865 for at least a million francs. One of Greuze's pupils, Madame Le Doux, imitated with success the manner of her master.

Madame de Valory published in 1813 a comédie-vaudeville

The Abominable Man

The Abominable Man is a 1971 police procedural novel by Swedish writers Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö. It is the seventh book in their series about Martin Beck; the plot follows Martin Beck and his colleagues trying to solve a murder on a senior policeman, known for his brutality against others. While the investigation is ongoing, a well armed man climbs up on a roof in Stockholm. One of Donald Knuth's favourite novels, he described it as "one of Sjöwall and Wahlöö's brilliantly Swedish detective novels". A senior policeman known for brutality is violently knifed while in his hospital bed. Within a 24-hour period, Martin Beck investigates the policeman's many enemies in an attempt to identify the killer, for whom the murder was only a precursor to a Charles Whitman-style attack on Stockholm. Since they cannot find a starting clue, the police go in the archives of the police ombudsman where they find many old complaints about Nyman, they encounter the entry of their former colleague Åke Eriksson. On the roof of a skyscraper in downtown Stockholm, it comes to a showdown with Eriksson, who has lost everything, at which point the novel ends with Martin Beck injured by a gunshot.

Martin Beck and his now grown-up daughter Ingrid develop their friendship. Police officer Kurt Kvant is killed in this book by the crazed killer on the roof; the book was directed by Bo Widerberg. It was renamed The Man on the Roof, stars Carl-Gustaf Lindstedt, Sven Wollter, Thomas Hellberg and Håkan Serner, it was awarded with two Guldbagge Awards
