No worries though. Some woman is campaigning to make Toronto a province. I have no problem with that. Then they can pay for their own shit instead of expecting the rest of Ontario to help fund whatever. Toronto's govt can then also be as big as it f*cking wants.
I know that you're not the brightest but try to follow.
You have the sixth largest government in Canada represented by 44 elected councellors making decisions on behalf of the citizens of the city. Along comes a Tamany Hall Fatcat from the outside who banishes half of the local representatives ... by decree, not consulting a single soul because he has scores to settle ... and you have only 22 people, friendly to the Fat-cat, now making the decisions for THE SIXTH LARGEST GOVERNMENT IN CANADA.
Could you imagine what would happen in Libetarian, tough guy Alberta if the Feds suddenly decreed without consultation that Alberta can only have 25 members of her Provincial Parlianent because we need to beat back big government? Not only that, make sure that the ridings with representation are friendly to the Federal Prime Minister who made the decree to get even with Albertans that he doesn't like? What do you think will happen?
Forcing a government that disburses more money than most provinces do into being run by less that two dozen carefully chosen buddies, is big, corrupt, Tanany Hall government at it's worst. If you were a real Conservative, you would get that. If you are merely part of the current crop of Trump-me-too-Neo-Nazis you will never get it because it far surpasses your intellectual capacities. You obviously don't have any use for democracy on the local level, which is the foundation cornerstone of North American democracy going right back to the beginning.
