Member Meeting: The Charter City, guest speaker John Sewell
The drive toward Toronto achieving Charter City (CC) status is one that would essential give the city much greater autonomy to finance and administer its own affairs. Currently, it is a “creature of the province,” enshrined in the Constitution, and subject to full control, and the whims, of the province.
John Sewell, former mayor of Toronto, lawyer, urban advocate and monitor of Metro police activities presents the case for the charter city.
