Show Me The Gravy Rob Ford

In Customer Service, Gravy, Have to Laugh, Toronto, Transportation, TTC on September 14, 2011 at 12:29

Just a tad…

Paging Miller.  Paging David Miller.  Poor Rob Ford.

From Natalie Alcoba in the National Post, “The results are considered to be accurate plus or minus 3%, 19 times out of 20. Age or regional specific results are less accurate. Forum Research paid for the poll “as a public service.” The Mayor’s office did not immediately respond to a request for a comment.

Forum also asked residents what they thought about specific cuts. It found:

84% disapprove of cancelling late night buses (a measure that is not contemplated by the TTC)
79% disapprove of closing libraries, 70% against cutting hours
73% oppose selling the Toronto Zoo
61% oppose selling the city’s three theatres, the Sony Centre, the St. Lawrence Centre and the Toronto Centre for the Performing Arts
76% disapprove cutting childcare spaces
68% disapprove of selling long term care homes
61% disapprove of eliminating clearing of driveway entrance snow

“Rob Ford campaigned on a promise to cut the gravy, none was found and the reality of cutting services residents rely on — often on a daily basis — is setting in,” Forum Research president Lorne Bozinoff said in a statement. “This has obviously shaken public confidence in his ability to handle the job of mayor.”

Show Me The Gravy!
