City Recommends Disbanding Committees
Mayor Ford’s Executive Committee voted in support of the recommendation to eliminate the City’s 21 advisory committees, including the Toronto Cycling Advisory Committee (TCAC). Approximately 30 individuals made deputations at the Executive Committee meeting in support of reinstating the advisory committees. Many of the deputations were specific to the TCAC and approximately 6 bike union members had the opportunity to speak. Citizens spoke on the merits of the cycling advisory committee by pointing out the free expert advice it provides to City staff and Council.
