The Committee expect solutions not rants, There are some solutions if you are keen to children Mr DelGrande. Mr. Del Grande you have been quoted on the media that this Budget Cuts are tough medicineto the City abcs, right?.
 
Y
ou have ordered a 10% reduction to all abcs agencies budgets  ,Well most of them have listened toyou ,

Mr. Del Grande the T.P.S have been allowed to make 4.5% reduction this year and promising to makethe following year in 2012 another 4.5% reduction because of Provincial legislation constraints. Wellisnt this fair and just to Toronto Taxpayers?.The T.P.S budget is the singles most expensive budget item, this year budget request is near to$933.781 and has intentions of initiating recruitments starting April 2012 so the so called reduction of staff is a temporary measure.The General Manager Mr Penachetii sent a memo to the T.P.S Board last November 17 2011requesting the T.P.S Board to examine at their board meeting of last November 24 2011 a  ServiceEfficiency Study prepared by Ernst and
Y
oung . I have contacted the T.P.S Board for a board decision onthis regards but it is difficult to get an answer its like trying to pull a teeth from a Dinosaur.It appears the item was deferred at the last meeting of the T.P.S Board November 24,2011I was in attendance yesterday and to my surprise a motion directing to the Citys TransportationDepartment to put a limit cap to the Paid Duty Service not greater than $200.000 a year was an item forvoting consideration.. I am not sure if this motion was passed or rejected by the committee. It would beinteresting to know what amount in the budget has been set aside to deal with Paid Duty Cost to theCity.Another item of interest is the ever growing cost of the T.P.S own investigation into the G20 Fiasco:
Independent Civilian Review into Matters Relating to the G20 Summit
this particular P.R Exercise
 billing is costing Toronto Taxpayer¶s $658,211 and growing «Mind you Mr. DelGrande, I know the result of this report is a waste of taxpayers money. This money could be better put to use to feed our poor children.
I understand that a ³Citizens Review´ has beenthe call from Torontonians into the G20 , By far a much cheaper investigation. But theT.P.S Board rejected the idea. At the Bill keeps going higher and higher«
Another solution to deal with the proposed charges to our Children is to demand , yes Mr DelGrande demand Mr. Murkejee and Chief Blair to abide by the decision of this committee tomake the 10% cut reduction to the T.P.S Budget how? Simple reduce CIVILIAN staff at theT.P.S I understand they are not subject to any Provincial Legislation so the cuts can be achieved.Also further cuts can be achieved if the T.P.S Board annual budget can be examined by anindependent firm to seek further efficiencies.
