Councillor Giorgio Mammoliti on “Keeping it Real” for Toronto taxpayers

David MenziesMission Specialist

On August 2nd, Toronto City Councillor for Ward 7 Giorgio Mammoliti, joined me when I was guest-hosting the Ezra Levant Show to discuss Premier Ford’s plan to streamline city council.


While it may sound counterintuitive for a councillor to agree with Ford about cutting the size of council by almost half, Mammoliti does agree, and he explains why.

We also discuss his bold new plan, if re-elected, for the troubled neighbourhood of Jane and Finch and other ideas he has to bring relief to Toronto’s beleaguered taxpayers.

See what happens when you speak directly to the troll…!! One should’ve addressed the troll saying that welfare has always been available for those that need it… free income is there for those too lazy to work.

You don’t represent any majority Canadian demographic. You are the fringe that want to change Canada from what it has always been. This is why Andrew Scheer wants nothing to do with your kind.

So why are you supporting trudeau and his crew to change Canada into an Islamic State?

Will the liberalist globalist trolls define Trump mentality? Please enlighten us….

Andrew Stephenson that experiment was a failure, only a truly dense person would think that a free income would not result in lazy people doing nothing and hurting the economy and others. "

It hadn’t gotten far enough to determine success or failure, so any such claims cannot be supported either way.

For one thing, it’s meant to support people that cannot work, or let them attend school or training so they can get back into the workforce. The second one is that it has a much shallower clawback. Under the current system, you can work part-time, say 20 hours a week, and because of social assistance clawbacks, net maybe 100 bucks more a month than you would on welfare. Why would someone work for a net pay of 2 dollars an hour?

Which is to say there are some pretty strong arguments against the current system as well.

How do you find out if changes work better? You try it. Unfortunately, they just canceled it so we don’t know.

By the way, no comment on the “land mine” comment? Doug Ford actually did accuse someone of bringing a land mine when he was asked about the minimum income project.

Alberta Maga,

You are being extreme and hyperbolic. Communists are not taking over.

Canada has always been to the left of America, even on Harper’s watch. Multiculturalism without assimilation was celebrated and praised as far back as the 80’s – all part of what Canadians loved about Canada.

You want to bring a Trump mentality to Canada and that’s just not what Canada is about at all.

Alberta Maga,

No, you are crying.

If your name is any indication, it’s not surprising. Alberta: Canada’s Texas.

Sonny Crockett look at the Brexit vote in the UK to see what i mean, the communist leaning people in power are stalling and doing everything to subvert the will of the people. Do you doubt they will try to simply deny it if they cannot stop it any other way?

More government is never the answer.

Sonny Crockett power does not tend to shift when communists take over, that is where the left wants us to go. Maybe you don’t want that , but many of your peers do, and they will take power for life if given the chance.

Sonny Crockett we are not crying, we are pointing out his ignorance and how he is ruining this country. There is an actual reason for our criticism unlike the lefts.
commented 2018-08-11 03:29:01 -0400
Sonny Crockett i am talking about more than that. The BS media is exposed and so is the left wing hatred and lies. And you do not represent any huge group of Canadians. Keep dreaming that you do.

I remember when Mammoliti HATED Rob and Doug Ford. This was when he was hoping to be mayor himself and he constantly attacked them both. When Rob Ford won, Mammoliti started kissing Rob Ford’s ass.

He is all about either wanting to be in control or be apart of the winning team and he will sell his soul to for either.

Robert Greeley,

There will be a new liberal leader and they will be Premier at some point. All politicians lose at some point. Did you think Harper was going to be PM forever too?

You don’t represent Canadian everyday people. You represent extreme views and changes you want to make to Canada. The Rebel and it’s views have a very small demographic in Canada.

Not to mention Andrew Scheer thinks this place represents the worst of Canada.

Happy voting in 2019!

wynnes liberalists are gone…trudeau and his crew are goof ups…plus, they are not loyal to Canadian Everyday People..

Mammoliti is on board with everything Ford does. His response to Doug Ford deflecting from questions about the basic income cancellation by accusing an Opposition MPP of bringing a land mine to work, was “wish I had thought of that”. Perhaps it would have helped him get his red light district, or his giant pole, or perhaps distract from that time (nearly 20 years ago, lifers hurrah!) he decided to take off his shirt in council while making a particularly powerful argument about public nudity.

Robert Greeley,

No, that is what you hope will happen.

Trudeau will probably be re-elected and I am not sure if you know this, but PM supersedes mayor’s and premiers.
