City Council Preview: June 2016

Budgeting, drugs, and Jim Karygiannis.

On this month's City Council agenda: inclusionary zoning, pot crackdowns in midtown, licensing landlords, and our financial future.

The Big Ticket

Getting Around

Identity Politics


A World-Class City

A Livable City

Jim Karygiannis

  • The impressively out-of-control Jim Karygiannis (Ward 39, Scarborough­–Agincourt) has two separate Integrity Commissioner investigations into his behaviour. In one incident, he aggressively confronted an UberX driver as they were picking up a fare. Another involves loudly threatening to get a constituent parking-ticketed in a shisha bar. (Er, clarification. The constituent was not parked in the shisha bar.) If Council manages to wring an apology out of him, we will eat our collective hat.
