“In both the drafts and the final report, Wallace presented three hypothetical paths, saying it was up to council to choose a financial direction: cut services to save costs; maintain existing service levels while not proceeding with planned improvements; or invest in the plans and strategies already approved by council by raising revenues.”

 

In other words the city needs to raise taxes to fund the same or better services or Cut our services. Would this have affected your vote or the decision of Torontonians?
