Ensuring Local Democracy in a 25-Councillor World

As the dust settles on the Oct. 22 Toronto election, HVRA Board member Sue Dexter and other community advocates have published a discussion paper titled “The New Reality: An Approach to Governing Toronto in a 25-Councillor World.” It urges the City to consult with the public on how to ensure local democracy in the wake of cuts to City Council. The paper can be found on the website Democracy Toronto, and the first positive media reactions are in from CBC and The Toronto Star.
