Olivia supports majority rule at city hall and believes in the power of local city councillors to represent Torontonians. She is committed to strengthening local democracy and does not support the undemocratic strong mayor powers.
Olivia will never veto council decisions. She will always consult with Torontonians and City Council before negotiating fundamental changes to governance and procedures at city hall.
Under the previous Mayor the City’s Budget process became less and less democratic. Olivia is committed to building a city budget alongside Torontonians and City Council so that it is ambitious and best serves the needs of our city.
