Like EYE Weekly argues this week, Rob Ford seems to be governing in a pure populist mode. If people say "We do/don't like this" he acts on that, whether is makes sense or not.
If that's the case, then we all need to let him know what we think. You can reach the mayor's office 416-397-3673 or by email at email@example.com
I just phoned them and talked to a guy about the 5 cent bag tax (which I support) and he said he tallied me on that. I also expressed concern about the possible cuts to the public library book allocation budget. I'm going to do this whenever a civic issue that I do/don't support comes up, and I encourage everyone to do the same. Maybe it'll actually work.
Call the Mayor! About anything!
