Since taking office in November, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has begun implementing his own personal agenda … an agenda that is frighteningly similar to the Tea Party Republicans in Wisconsin and Ohio whose actions have sparked massive protests. Ford has made it clear that he is hell bent on selling off public services, derailing public transit, targeting trade unions and rolling-back Toronto’s environmental plans. This style of “aggressive conservatism” is designed to usher in a new wave of Harris-style cuts across Ontario.
Toronto should be a city that everyone can be proud of – one that serves all its residents regardless of income, which celebrates its diversity and plays a leadership role in crucial areas like climate change and social equality. Today, all of these priorities are under threat in Toronto. Tomorrow they could be challenged in any town or city in Ontario!
