None of those things helped the Maple Leafs. The fact that he is also so public about his charity work shows he does it a lot for the attention as well.

Obviously, it is great that he does charity work and supports gay rights but that's not the job of a GM - you don't hire a GM to march in pride parades, you hire him to build a winning team. The Leafs were paying him a gigantic salary and let him spend to the cap and he failed miserably, doing charity work on the side doesn't make up for that
