The issues facing Toronto City Council are now bleeding onto AM 640 air ways. Today Councillor Joe Mihevic joined the Jeff McArthur Show to talk about his planned $1-a-day parking levy concept.
The city would charge an extra dollar per day for every commercial parking spot in the city. The idea could bring in over $500 million annually and would help battle down the $57 million dollar budget short fall facing the city.
Hearing this, former councillor Doug Ford also called into the program to express his disgust. Calling it a, “simple plan that the government doesn’t needs,” adding that these efficiencies could be found in cost cutting measures.
