Why is Doug Ford not reducing the number of city councilors in Ottawa from 23 to 9? That would still give them better representation than he is giving Toronto.

The same can be said across the rest of the province, but in other cases it would be from 4 to 0.01, etc.

Okay. Let him. I really don't care. We don't have much in the way of democracy at the municipal level anyway because almost no one votes. That means city councilors only need to zealously pursue activists and community groups and what they want. That will give them enough votes to easily win over nameless newbies that might run against them.

This is a few years old but nothing has changed, really.
