'I have a plan': Mayor Miller
But to many residents faced with rink closures and program cuts, it sure doesn't seem like it

West Toronto resident Jutta Mason came down to yesterday's executive committee meeting on the off chance the cost containment measures would be on the agenda.
The mother of three says she's found -- particularly in the past month -- she's had to turn up at City Hall "on spec" because items not listed on the public agenda of a meeting often end up being discussed as if by magic.
So true. It seems as of late in Mayor David Miller's highly transparent (!) regime, controversial agenda items are withheld until the last minute to head off any public input.
Mason couldn't have called it better yesterday. An unbelievable 10 items were walked on to the committee agenda at the 11th hour, including the cost containment report.
