    Hi, Since to change the term of councilors will take a change by the Province of the Act that governs Toronto, should we not be asking them to do the study?

      Hi Mr. Burson,

      It is true that the City cannot implement term limits on its own. The motion before council asks that a report be done into the feasibility and potential impacts of term limits. If the report recommends term limits and council adopts it, Toronto City Council would pass a motion asking the Province to amend the qualifications for standing as a candidate in a municipal election contained in the Ontario Municipal Elections Act.

      Thank you,

    Why is this city in such a mess almost two weeks after a snow fall of only 30cm. Whom ever is in charge should be ashamed of themselves, this is supposed to be a world class city, it looks like somewhere in the third world. I have two hip replacements and have to stay in because I’m in such pain trying to get around on the snowbanks and the mess on the sidewalks. Does the city still look after removinmg the snow or has it been subbed out to private contractors who get paid for sitting around and then get extra towork when it snows. There should be quite a bit of money in the snow removale account with the amount of snow we have gotten in the past few years, or has Ford used this money for something else and telling us people that have to fight the snow in cars and on foot two weeks after the snowfall. What are we going to do if it really snows? It used to take about two days to have the city cleared of the snow and back to normal or is what we are experiencing now normal?
    Not very happy

      Hi Mr. Briggs,

      Thank you for your message.
      This year’s storm was a major weather event that required all available resources to ensure that Toronto continued moving. As Torontonians, we know that storms will happen, snow-banks will pile up and we will have to adapt to the weather. However, the process of clearing our streets should not involve rude, dangerous, destructive activities by snow ploughs, or take an unacceptable amount of time.

      Councillor McMahon has heard from many of you that there were some unacceptable practices
      during this last storm and she is following up with Transportation Services to relay all of your complaints and comments to ensure that Toronto’s snow clearing services are improved based on your feedback.

      Thank you,
