The fact that Ford is going to hike taxes on Torontonians by two-and-a-half percent probably doesn't strike anyone as surprising, since we knew where all of his populist rhetoric that brother Doug Ford and puppet Comrade Gorgio Mammoliti were pushing was going in the end - disaster.
I do find it hilariously ironic however, given that Ford's entire platform revolved around attacking the supposedly high-tax Miller administration by promising to "stop the gravy train" while saving services.
Well, Mayor Ford, you'd figure that anyone promising to halt excessive and frivolous spending would not raise taxes which directly feed such spending. Just sayin'. You're clearly not going to save city jobs or services, so whats with the tax hike?
