Canadian Urbanism Uncovered


  1. How did I know, even before clicking on it, that the “Miller’s wild spending” column would be by Royson James. That guy is so biased it’s embarrassing.

    In particular;

    How does one justify the largest budgetary spending increase in Toronto’s history and a $2.25 billion jump in spending in the past six years? And how can the mayor now cry poor 11 weeks later?

    Tax hikes did not match the spending levels. Spending levels have been too high for the anticipated revenues. And councillors continue to spend because, they say, their constituents need the services – even if they balk at paying for them with higher taxes.

  3. Frankly, I didn’t read it, and I’m not going to. I don’t trust James’s facts or his analysis, and I refuse to provide him with an audience. I’d be happy to read about the issues if they’re presented objectively by someone without an obvious axe to grind.

    In comparison, though I don’t agree with everything in it, this article doesn’t seem that bad.
