David Miller's infamous broom is set to sweep three more off the good ship Toronto's decks. - Council to debate axing 3 managers

Now while there is certainly room for improvment in the way the city operates, it's hard to envision that moving some of the higher level boxes around and drawing some lines will have a discernible impact. My take is that this is nothing more than a convenient way for the mayor to jettison staff he doesn't like.

Of course, the NDP cabal in council is backing the mayor:

...Dumping the commissioners would end the parochialism that has occurred between competing departments...

claims the inveterate nitwit Glenn De Baeremaeker. Really! If shuffling reporting lines and axing a few managers were a solution to departmental parochialism, such silos would have vanished in most organizations a long time ago.
