Toronto cuts that are off the table – at least for now

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford voted at the end of a 20-hour executive committee meeting to reject some proposed cuts and to put off decisions on almost all of the others to the 2012 budget process, which begins in November and ends in mid-January.

A proposal to phase out 2,000 subsidized daycare spaces was pulled by the committee while the city lobbies the province and the federal government for more funding; library closings were also taken off the table; arts and culture grants and funding for other community partnerships was handed off to the city manager for further study, with a report due in November.
