Instead of saving the jobs of elitist politicians, Tory should be focused on dealing with the massive surge of crime in Toronto.
Doug Ford’s plan to slash Toronto City Council from 47 to 25 seats is awesome.
There are far too many politicians, and making the cuts to Toronto’s failing City Hall will improve efficiency and save a bunch of money.
Yet, in a sign of John Tory’s totally failed priorities, he’s attacking Ford’s plan.
As noted by the CP, “Tory accused Ford of “meddling” with the city’s affairs and said the premier should not be interfering as candidates begin campaigning and fundraising for the October vote. “What I just can’t support is change being rammed down our throats without a single second of public consultation,” he said. “You don’t change the rules in the middle of the game.”‘
Of course, Tory is currently the mayor of a city that is going through a massive crime surge. Instead of attacking Ford’s good plan, that’s what he should be focused on. If a mayor can’t deliver public safety, they have very little credibility on anything else.
Fewer politicians means more efficiency, and more money to be saved that can be spent on things like more police to enhance public safety, better transit, better infrastructure, and more.
Tory should get on board with Ford’s plan, and use some of the $25 million in savings to address the horrendous surge in crime that’s taken place under his mayoral term.
