As Toronto city council prepares to meet in regular session for the first time since the Rob Ford video scandal, there's all kinds of chatter in the hallways about the Mayor's decisions to boot two councillors from his executive committee.
Paul Ainslie and Jaye Robinson are gone. Ainslie's replacement is Norm Kelly. Robinson's replacement is Anthony Perruzza. Kelly for Ainslie I can see...Ainslie seems to be drifting to a more centrist approach while Kelly is firmly right.
Perruzza for Robinson is a puzzler. I thought it was just me...but when a Ford loyalists like Deputy Mayor Doug Holyday starts questioning...it's time to take notice.
Don't get me wrong, Mayor Ford has every right to make any changes to his executive that he sees fit and Jaye Robinson has been sending signals for months that she was not happy on the executive committee...feeling like a voice in the wilderness. ...
