“We have more libraries per person than any other city in the world. I’ve got more libraries in my area than I have Tim Hortons.”
—Councillor Doug Ford (Ward 2, Etobicoke North), speaking on CFRB 1010 on July 14, as quoted in a post on the Our Public Library website. Along with the quote, Maureen O’Reilly shares some interesting data, namely that Etobicoke has 13 library branches and 39 Tim Hortons. “In fact, on a per capita basis, the people in Etobicoke have fewer libraries than Toronto as a whole,” she notes.
