While Crime Surges In His City, John Tory Whines About Doug Ford’s Plan To Slash Toronto City Council

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.

Where was the consultation? The mayor has a point.


has there been ONE shooting in Toronto in the last year that involved a legal handgun?

Reducing the number of elected representatives is not a good idea.
That would put more power in the hands of anonymous staffers.
De-amalgamation is the conservative approach.

There are too many so called conservatives like John (Red) Tory.
No wonder Canada is in a mess.Good work Doug.Keep it up.
City of Ottawa is bloated as well – with NDP and Liberals.


Love Doug

John Tory is a ‘tory’ only by the accident of his name — not his philosophy — in that regard, he almost makes Trudeau look like a Tory.
