    Toronto's mayor wants to ban begging as services for the homeless get slashed from NOW Toronto:


    Loose change
    Fordists urge ban on begging at the same time serv­ices for the homeless are on the hit list

    By Ben Spurr


    Do we really want to be a city that bans begging?

    In a salvo aimed directly at the city’s poor, high-profile Fordists last week urged the province to give police more authority to crack down on panhandling.

    “We need to change the legislation to allow us to take people off the streets and put them into the hospitals where they belong, in many cases,” Giorgio Mammoliti, chair of the homeless task force, told the press.

    Deputy mayor Doug Holyday believes panhandlers are flocking here because our laws are softer than those in cities like Montreal. ............(more)

    If Toronto needs any pointers, they should contact the city of Sarasota for tips on "helping" the homeless. MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! ;):D
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Doesn't Sarasota bus them to Clearwater to become Tom Cruise disciples?
