An analysis of the operating expenses for the City. An examination of the role of Mayor. A concern about the relationship between the City and business, particularly the construction industry. Homeowners and tenants. The activities at City Hall. A concern for neighbourhoods. Conflicts between residential and industrial interests. Mr. Smith talks about a new set of planning rules and discusses the Central Area Plan. As Deputy Mayor, he reviews accomplishments of the present administration. Other topics include a sense of community, and a style of leadership. He concludes with a comparison of priorities. Mr. Sewell reviews some of his accomplishments over the past years, particularly in conjunction with saving neighbourhoods. The speaker focuses on three issues that he feels are going to be of great concern to the City of Toronto: the T.T.C., property tax reform, and housing. He concludes with a view of his role as a leader, and as one player in a group working on solutions.
