“Well, if they give me my job back.”

That was Deputy Mayor Doug Holyday (apparently no fan of his deputy status) when asked earlier this week if he would support splitting Toronto back into six cities—including Etobicoke, of which he was the last mayor. Councillor Paula Fletcher wants to champion a motion that would do just that, but as much as Holyday might long for those good ol’ halcyon days, we think his current title is kind of cute. What’s that line from Toy Story? “You’re my favourite deputy!”
