At InsideToronto.com, reporter Mike Adler is getting a bit catty:
Ford, who chaired the meeting for over an hour, said it was important to hear such views. “You’re our boss, we understand that,” he said. But outside the chamber said most people are happy with his plans for a zero-per-cent budget increase.
