    Council Will Try to Cut the Mayor’s Office Budget and Remove Ford as Chair of Executi

    It seems like the Councillors of Toronto are putting their spin on Grover's (Norquist) quote for their crack smoking mayor. " shrink government down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub".


    <
    The goal is to shrink the mayor’s office budget to the size of a councillor’s; this would enable him to retain three or four staff members and have some money for expenses. >

    <
    Yesterday councillors—who can convene a special meeting on 24 hours’ notice if a majority of them sign a petition to do so—filed paperwork for two meetings with the City clerk’s office. Those two meetings (they need two separate ones because special meetings must, according to council procedures, be dedicated to narrowly-defined issues) will look at curbing the mayor’s authority.>

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    I had to laugh when I was reading up on this on the news. Apparently the council has now way to remove a mayor from office. Lol Canada.

    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.
