4th Reading

The Ontario government seems to be proceeding with plans to merge the cities of Metro Toronto into a single municipal government. But the move is opposed by all six current mayors. There's a debate over whether amalgamation will save money or cost more, and whether the Tories' real agenda is getting rid of a pesky, left-wing council in the City of Toronto. Host Steve Paikin welcomes the mayor of the City of York, Frances Nunziata. She joins our "Fourth Reading" panelists Hugh Segal, Ruth Grier and Richard Mahoney.
