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: Amy Casipullai
Occupation: Senior Policy & Communication Coordinator at the Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants
Political History: Her occupation is political-ish, I suppose, though it’s worth noting that OCASI does not receive money under Toronto’s Community Partnership & Investment Program
Scheduled Speaker No.: 152; Actual Speaker No.: 114
Note: I love the way Amy ends with “I don’t think we can let you do that.” Nicely delivered.
