John Tory extends Rob Ford's legacy of austerity: Cole | Toronto Star ⇒

   26 May 2016, mid-morning

Former mayor Rob Ford may be gone, but his vision of public service on the cheap is still here. Where Ford promised to respect “taxpayers,” Tory similarly vows to protect “homeowners,” whom he recently claimed are “stretched to the limit,” and cannot afford to pay more in property taxes.

Tory is the mayor Toronto deserves. The bar for our mayor was apparently, “not addicted to crack-cocaine,” but Toronto should set its sights higher.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
