Despite the crap that Holyday is saying, statscan shows that 50-80% of police calls are for non-criminal issues (alarms going off/mental health crises is what statscan cites as examples)

I don't know who needs to hear this but the homelessness & housing crisis & the mental health crisis will *never* be solved w/ police. & the reason why these crises exist is because we keep sinking $$$ into policing & cutting community & city services.

Cannot believe my ears - just asked how many women would be laid off if the police budget was cut. Equity doesn't mean more women cops. It means investing in child care and more - but last I checked you've voted against child care spaces.

I want to tell us why she thinks she's smarter than all the studies that show that bodycameras are harmful to us. I want her to tell us why this will be different than the accountability measures already in place that consistently fail.

This is the Toronto City Council of overwhelmingly white middle-aged & near-retired ppl, in charge of debating the merits of reducing the police budget. This is 1 way systemic racism works: Putting people in charge who (mostly) lack perspective to see the need for change

I'd like to know that literally thousands of people are saying they want less police and have been out on the streets for almost a month saying so. How can he possibly say he hasn't heard that unless he's being wilfully ignorant?

Truly ridiculous that this motion from , which uses specific language addressing issues in our community, couldn't get enough votes, but Councillors unanimously voted on a vague motion that references "consultation" with absolutely no concrete action plans.

has a horrible history of bad employment practices, violating labour laws, and basically paying poverty wages. They also fired almost ALL of their staff back in late March/early April. We need more info here!

OVERWHELMINGLY THE DATA CONSENSUS IS THAT BODY CAMERAS DO NOTHING

Y'all see the move? Consultation. This is how they do nothing. This is how they always do nothing. This is how they say "Fuck your Black life. Fuck your indigenous life." The police union is apparently more important than our deaths.

Imagine all these public deaths, and your primary message at council is: "The police need to be commended" Disgusted.

94% of the Iacobucci recommendations have been implemented, . Why don't you know this? Why is this being used as a stalling tactic??? Reforms Do. Not. Work. They haven't worked. Stop pointing at smoke and mirrors.

Sounds like needs to learn about the model minority myth and look into how her praise for police is complicit in oppressing Black and Indigenous lives who continue to experience racism You don't "overcome" racism. You become palatable to whiteness.

10% budget cut to TO police is not nearly enough ( demands 50% to start to make meaningful steps to defund, disarm, dismantle the police). And it still failed. Glad to see ’s support. Did your councillor vote for it? If not, vote them out.

Very disappointed in . There have been thousands out on the street in the last month daily demanding far more than whenever the consultations were done. Is this a democracy or not? How can you ignore all these demonstrations? People are dying.

Really glad that City Council, as part of their “reform” package, voted against and chose instead to give the police $50 million for equipment that doesn’t work.

Toronto City Councillors have heard from THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS of residents this week demanding de-funding the police and yet, as they always do, remain focussed on the small number of community members who engage in inaccessible, irregular "community consultations"

Take a good look at the names of the councillors who voted against this modest budget cut. They chose white supremacy over racial justice. Don't forget it.
