Beginning at 9:30 a.m. and extending through to the next morning, the City of Toronto’s Executive Committee — led by Mayor Rob Ford — heard more than one hundred and fifty deputations from a diverse group of citizens. In a sincere bid to ensure that the passion, insight and creativity displayed over the course of that epic meeting is not forgotten, Ford For Toronto will be posting a deputation video every weekday for the month of August.
Deputant: Alison Gorbould (twitter)
Occupation: Unspecified, though she assures the committee she is not a union member
Political History: Former member of the Toronto Public Space Committee
Scheduled Speaker No.: 219; Actual Speaker No.: 134
Note: Alison’s response to Matlow, where she asks “May I respond as if you asked me a question?”, is incredibly witty, especially given that it was like 5 a.m. when she spoke.
