Quote:
Mayor John Tory, sending a letter directly to Queen's Park, is urging Premier Doug Ford to reconsider his plan to cut the size of council.

“Something as fundamentally important as an election —a primary mechanism of civic democracy — should not be changed without public input and in the absence of a clear process or robust understanding of public impacts and costs,” Tory’s letter, sent Thursday night and forwarded to reporters Friday morning, reads. “In light of this lack of any public consultation, I urge you to consider putting the process on hold to allow for a referendum so we can let the people speak.”

While Tory is talking a tough game in front of the cameras and his colleagues,
He isn't acting like a Mayor who is heartbroken over this.

Downplaying a legal challenge and even waiting till the end of the month after Bill 5 is passed to review secondary options seems strange.
