By Andrew Moran     Sep 1, 2010 in Politics
Toronto - At the National Club in the financial district, the Toronto mayoral candidates debated on public transit, bike lanes, green technology, Toronto Hydro and many other topics in relation to the environment.
On Tuesday night, the Toronto mayoral candidates: Rob Ford, Joe Pantalone, Rocco Rossi, George Smitherman and Sarah Thomson discussed and debated on environmental issues in the city, including public transit, bike lanes, green energy and conservation.
The debate at the National Club was sponsored by Toronto Greenhouse and moderated by Toronto Star columnist Tyler Hamilton.
According to the Toronto Star, during the debate, leading mayoral candidate, Ford, received a loud boo from the crowd when he stated: “Green energy — it’s just too expensive, ladies and gentlemen. We’d love to use it but it’s far too expensive right now.”
Ford later added that the city of Toronto has to examine burning methodology, whether it would be gasification or incineration: “Garbage is money, ladies and gentleman. Every time I see a truck full of garbage I think: There are dollar bills there, there is money.”
