SMALLER GOVERNMENT: Doug Ford’s Decision To Slash Toronto City Council Is A Huge Win For Taxpayers

Less money spent on politicians means more for the services people rely on.

Doug Ford continues to show leadership and get results.

His latest move to slash the Toronto City Council from 47 councillors to 25 is a huge win for Toronto taxpayers.

It means less money spent on politicians and political staff, and more money for things like police, roads, subways, buses, and other infrastructure.

It’s smaller, more efficient government.

Here’s what Ford said on Twitter:

“I promised to reduce the size and cost of government, and end the culture of waste and mismanagement. More politicians are not the answer. These changes will dramatically improve the decision making process, and help restore accountability and trust in local governments.”

“For too long City Council has failed to act on the key issues facing Toronto. Less Councillors will mean a more efficient government, and more action on key issues like transit, housing and infrastructure.”

Ford’s decision is a win for everybody, except a few entitled politicians who want to be insulated from the same job insecurity the rest of us regularly face.

Ford has put the politicians on notice: It’s no longer a free ride at the expense of the taxpayers, nothing can be taken for granted, and money will shift towards what actually matters.

Ford shows that he understands that all money spent by the government is essentially stolen from the taxpayers who earned it, and he’s determined to make sure that less of that money is taken. And for the money that is taken, he’s making sure it actually goes towards a good use.

Of course, many current radical-left city councillors in Toronto are going crazy, and that’s because they feel entitled to jobs and money at the taxpayers expense. Thankfully, Doug Ford is putting them in their place.

What Rob Ford started, Doug Ford is finishing: The Gravy Train is being brought to a stop.
