John Tory is the Mayor and has one voice on City Council. These businesses need to rally their efforts and go after the councillor(s) for this section of the city and get them involved publicly. If they aren’t ideologically disposed, then rally forces to remove them in the next election cycle. You guys are going to have to fight fire with fire!

City hall just doesn't want to admit it's a flawed idea. They can say whatever they like I was going to get something from MEC and only store that had it was King. Rather pay shipping than fight that mess.

Same with Lee Valley.

I am surprised that a business man like Tory would make such a stupid decision that is destroying the very life blood of the city. Businesses in the down town area pay taxes that keep the city going. When an area is deserted by businesses the gangs move in and take over. I say it happen in Warden Woods and in the USA in Sanbury

Stupid stupid stupid. There is a small window of time that these businesses can have a bad season and recover. Very small. Tory and City council are killing them. What a disgrace. It's not just Tory by the way. People need to pay more attention to their councillors. That's the real problem. Not that I'm excusing Tory. I'm not but he was not alone in this.
