TODAY — Toronto — A four feet long banner attached to a string of colourful balloons and released at today’s New Year’s Levee at Toronto City Hall. Members of Toronto Stop the Cuts Network also unfurled a four feet banner in front of Rob Ford, both read, “On January 17, we will stop the cuts.” January 17th is the date City Council begins debating the 2012 Budget. We have called for a rally at 5:30pm at City Hall that day to oppose further cuts to services and layoffs. The vote on the Budget may take place on the 17th, 18th or 19th of January.
One person was detained by City Hall security but was released about 45 minutes later. No charges were laid.
