Of course, totally eliminating...

...all gun crime in Toronto, has made it all worthwhile...

The City of Toronto is bleeding from a nine-month-old self-inflicted gunshot wound to the foot, and some councillors aren't shying away from salting the wound.

Yesterday, the Toronto Sportsmen's Show announced they were leaving the city-owned Exhibition Place for the province's Metro Convention Centre, where they'll be allowed to promote and sell firearms.
Way to go, Super Dave... you sure showed all those evil thugs.
The show is taking with it a cheque for $750,000 that used to go the city, and some councillors say they still need the cash.

"If there's any organization that can't afford to lose $750,000, it's the City of Toronto," Councillor Doug Holyday said.

"It was just a few years ago that the city of Toronto was going to close the skating rinks during the Christmas Break because it would cost....$750,000."

Toronto taxpayers will be more than happy to give Mayor Miller another $750,000 dollars if the recession affects their socialist paradise, Toronto doesn't need any more business.

Harassing law-abiding citizens and allowing criminals to victimize people employs hordes of left-leaning, big-government people who all lobby for Mayors like Miller. Pathetic.
