It was a shock when the newly elected Ford Government, without consultation, introduced this legislation to change the City of Toronto Act (COTA) and the Municipal Elections Act (MEA) to alter the size and composition of Toronto City Council and School Boards in the middle of the current municipal election.
No matter your opinion on the size of Toronto City Council, this is an unprecedented abuse of democracy and government power.
Trustee Jennifer Story and I are hosting an emergency community meeting on Wednesday, August 8th to discuss the impact Bill 5 will have on our community and our City. All are welcome to attend.
