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.

Note: SYeD’s litany of councillor-specific recommendations has a nice bang-bang-bang rhythm to it that I really enjoy. Some might found his suggestion for Councillor Palacio a bit rude — it was the councillor’s birthday — but, really, I think SYeD was just trying to be helpful.
