City looking for your input

The City of Toronto is bankrupt, and would like you to help figure out what to do: cut spending or increase revenue (or both).

An online questionnaire asks residents (or anyone with an internet connection) to rank services that the city provides, such as environment, transit, culture, and water. It also asks respondents to say whether the service should be provided by the city or contracted out.

The survey is quite detailed and interesting—if you’re into, you know, surveys and city government. Your humble correspondent was surprised, given the ideology of the current administration at City Hall, that raising taxes and user fees was an option the survey provided.

The consultation period ends June 17. You can complete the survey here.
