Councillors passed the 2016 City of Toronto Budget. I voted against the overall budget increase; introduced a Motion to have funds dedicated for the Scarborough Subway and transit improvements north of the 401; and, introduced a Motion to increase funding for the City’s Student Nutrition Program.
Tuesday morning, Mayor Tory and the Executive Committee of Council, approved an overall budget increase of 2.69%. This is composed of a 1.3 % increase, plus 0.6 % to help pay for the yet-to-be-decided transit plan for Scarborough.
