Toronto Must Keep Fighting Doug Ford – For the Good of Democracy
After the Ontario Court of Appeal recently ruled that Toronto’s upcoming municipal election would go ahead with 25 wards instead of 47, the province turned its attention to the city’s waterfront.
There’s speculation Premier Doug Ford has a personal interest in reviving the idea of a casino on the city’s waterfront.
In 2013, when Ford was a councillor, Toronto city council rejected a downtown casino in a near-unanimous vote. Likewise, municipalities in the pre-amalgamated Toronto fiercely opposed the creation of a casino in 1997.
