The fantastic folks at the Toronto Standard have broken down the KPMG reports by committee and provide a nice little precee of what’s likely to be proposed and how much it will impact on making up the shortfall.
This whole review process was really kick-started during Mayor Rob Ford election campaign, whence he promised to end the “gravy train” at City Hall. The KPMG report, however, tends to confirm that more than 90 percent of the services the city provides are not even remotely gravy.
Now the question is: can the cuts make up the shortfall or will Ford have to raise taxes anyway? Well he’s not going to do that – so who or what is going to get slashed over an above what we see here?
