Rob Ford Must Go - Campaign to Impeach Mayor Ford

I support this petition

Quote:
His campaign was run on falsehoods, smoke and mirrors but the numbers are in and Rob Ford can't balance a budget without cutting services and significantly raising your taxes.

His policies will dismantle all of the very elements that make this city livable. Spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to dismantle bicycle lanes. Telling citizens to use 911 to report graffiti. And voting to cut funding for street festivals, community centres, promoting race relations, elderly person's centres, violence-prevention programs, community-based recreation and other programs. These are the very services that give this city a heart and soul.

Rob Ford is not my mayor. Now let's make it official.

He might not be YOUR Mayor but he's definitely MINE. He's not perfect but he's trying to sort out the years of mess. Good luck to him!!

funny enough the budget was balanced before, WITH those services.

Hard to understand how I will far less services, and pay lots more tax. This is good???

That to me is having been lied to. And I bet homeowners will see that soon enough if they don't already.

With this one, baiting a live trap with a cheeseburger will probably work.

Wasn't the same method of saving money by Ford used by Chretien to remove Canada's debt?

hard to call it even similar, but the was a massive, massive debt left by the spending conservatives (who promised not to do so, sound familiar???) and they -had- to cut services to balance the budget. There's many debates on what services they cut, I don't agree with how they did it completely either.

But Rob Ford didn't take office with a massive debt. In fact, there was a surplus. But he has as I said, some multi billion dollar boondoggles to fund so he has to get the money from somewhere.

Rabid right wingers are frothing at the mouth because he's telling them he's cutting the gravy, and getting spending in order.

No he's not LOL...

I was just thinking the other day... back when Rob Ford was talking about getting rid of the gravy, I think I'd assumed he meant cutting council, not services.
