What's Doug Ford up to? He seems to be slashing the number of Toronto municipal councillors from 47 to 25 without any consultation - potentially interfering with municipal election that will be held on Oct. 22. In contrast, it is interesting that cities in Alberta have half as many municipal councillors as cities in Ontario for similar populations.

Doug Ford will save money in salaries (25 million over four years), but will the voice of people continue to be represented after the cuts? Why are municipal governments in Ontario twice as large (more than twice in Toronto) as those in other provinces?

For comparison:

Calgary
population 1.2 million
14 councillors plus mayor

Edmonton
population 1 milion
12 councillors plus mayor

Toronto
population 2.8 million
47 councillors

Ottawa
population 1 million
23 councillors plus mayor.

The U.S. announced today that it is reducing the tariff on Canadian newsprint that it imposed in January and the tariff could be reduced further in September:

After the tariff went into effect, many smaller newspapers around the country struggled to handle the increased costs, leading to layoffs and page-count reductions . Newspaper industry groups lobbied Congress and the administration to back off the tariffs, arguing that the measures did more harm than good.

Good news is....we don’t do that much trade with Saudi Arabia....
though I wonder if that large military equipment deal will be affected.
