Rob Ford says he brought Toronto back from a “fiscal cliff,” city manager says “nope”
Rob Ford has taken issue with a new report from the Institute of Municipal Finance and Governance that argues that Toronto’s per-household spending is roughly the same now as it was a decade ago (before Ford was elected), and that the city needs more tax revenue to maintain its services and infrastructure. In a press release issued in response to the report, the mayor, as he has in the past, claimed complete responsibility for the city’s financial stability—or, as the release put it: “The reality is, my administration brought the City of Toronto back from the edge of a fiscal cliff.” In response to that claim, the Sun reports that city manager Joe Pennachetti, Toronto’s top bureaucrat, took a rare rhetorical shot at the mayor during a press conference. “That terminology I do not support,” he said. “We’ve had a double-A credit rating for the last 10 years. We have never been on a fiscal cliff.”

Sorry Rob….you can not take credit for something that never happen…….
Rob Ford has lied, misled, twisted words, and acted on his own in many ways and the out come has always been the same…….Rob Ford can not be believed or has any credibility
in anything he says or does……in other words he can not be trusted to do the job he was elect for……looks like there are no votes for him at this door……
