Political Blind Date – City Finances

Two politicians with opposing points of view try to get to know each other in each episode of this six-part series. Whether cycling around the city, or trying to rent a flat in Toronto’s red-hot housing market, the two subjects are brought together to tackle Canada’s most important issues face-to-face through in-depth conversations. Provincial funding cuts have forced the City of Toronto to make some hard choices about its budget shortfall. Budget Chief Gary Crawford believes in finding efficiencies, but City Councillor Shelley Carroll believes that new revenue tools are needed.
