Politics as usual in Toronto

September 2018

Although I’m in favour of cutting Toronto City Council from 47 members to 25, I must congratulate the mayor and councilors for winning their court challenge.  You all worked very quickly, very efficiently and very hard to present your case to the court and you prevailed, regardless of Premier Ford’s invocation of the Notwithstanding Clause.  Now get the damn Scarborough subway built!

If you put as much effort into cutting the endless red tape and tackling priority projects the city needs completed, such as transportation, repairs to schools, social housing and other crumbling infrastructure, as you put into saving your own jobs, Toronto wouldn’t be in the mess it is in today.
