Toronto Spoke: “This is how we solve the billion dollar deficit,” says HiMY SYeD

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: HiMY SYeD (website, twitter)

Occupation: Independent Photojournalist; Giant Outstallation Artist; “Torontopreneur”; etc.

Political History: Ran for mayor last year.

Scheduled Speaker No.: 298; Actual Speaker No.: 160

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.
