A recent poll found term limits for city council and the mayor are popular with Torontonians.
The poll, conducted by Forum Research, found 61 per cent of participants supported a term limit for mayors. Support for implementing councillor terms was 58 per cent. The poll surveyed 876 Toronto residents.
During the last City Council meeting, Councillor McMahon introduced a motion to impose a three-term limit (a total of 12 years) for councillors to encourage a healthy turnover. She will continue to explore limiting the length of time municipal politicians can serve to promote new ideas and fresh faces in our democracy.
