Warmington nails it.

The Mayor should ignore the naysayers and stick with the plan.

The Fords campaigned on the basis of cut WASTE and no service cuts. Unfortunately he hasn't found enough waste so he has to make it appear that they are overstaffed etc..the usual political brownie point. Service cuts and staff cuts come hand in hand. Sadly to balance the books this will have to happen...Federally, Provincially and city wise. None of the 3 levels of gov't will consider cutting from the top down...always from the bottom up , usually, mysteriously stopping near the top. Way too many councillors, MPPs and MPs. Way too many policy makers.

Typical right-wing rag. Fred, even you have to admit the fact that the current mayor said he would cut waste and no service cuts. What happened to the surplus money in the budget that he inherited from Miller? He spent like a kid in candy shop. He's bad for the city. The supposed debt is $700 million and he wants to decimate the arts and other services to save $100 million. Tell me how this is a smart move? All he had to do was NOT get rid of the car registration fee and raise taxes by 2% or 3% and there you have your balanced budget. Plus, he still has the surplus in the bank gaining INTEREST for another year.

wasn't so long ago that some politician got rid of radar cameras or whatever they were called. They brought in revenue and kept the speeders down...both positives. But to get votes they were dropped.
All about votes.Not ideas or ingenuity. As Groucho Marx said..."military intelligence, an contradiction in terms". Same as politicians and ingenuity.

I say YES TO CUTS! Since amalgamation our city worker population has steadily increased. Amalgamation was supposed to stop redundancy. I work in the private sector. We've suffered in cuts from 2006. It's the public sector's turn now.

I love the crying: Think of the arts. If they can't find a private patron, perhaps they should get real jobs like the rest of us, or like the great masters before them they can make works that someone actually asked for to pay the bills. I'm tired of paying taxes to support "artists" with large gallery shows where they tossed random paint at a wall, or gyrated around a stage in some incomprehensible interpretive dance or creating music nobody wants to hear outside of a select few.
