Firing Gary Webster is an insult to the democratic process in Toronto and sets a poor precedent for anyone in the future who might happen to disagree with Rob Ford or any future mayor. We must not stand for this. This is Toronto - we deserve better.

I just signed the following petition addressed to: Rob Ford, Councillor Di Giorgio, Councillor Crisanti, Councillor Palacio, Councillor Minnan-Wong, Councillor Kelly.
Gary Webster has been an honorable TTC chief for 35 years. He has shown that he is a qualified, consummate professional who offers factual evidence and professional guidance with regards to the future of transit in Toronto.
In light of Mayor Rob Ford's unrealistic and unattainable plan for subway expansion, Gary Webster has offered his expert advice. This advice does not align with Mayor Ford's vision, and for this he is paying an unfair price - not only for himself, but for the citizens of Toronto as well.
We ask that Rob Ford and the five councillors involved reconsider their decision to rescind Mr. Webster's position as TTC chief. He has done nothing wrong. The citizens of Toronto will NOT stand for this and there WILL be political consequences if you decide to go ahead with this decision.
More importantly, there will be catastrophic consequences for the citizens of Toronto as our transit system expansion continues to stall and regress under the leadership of Rob Ford. The damage will be done for many years and generations beyond his mayoral term.
Firing Gary Webster is an insult to the democratic process in Toronto and sets a poor precedent for anyone in the future who might happen to disagree with Rob Ford or any future mayor. We do not stand for this. This is Toronto - we deserve better. We need the expertise of Gary Webster during these difficult times for the TTC.
Please reconsider your decision and allow Mr. Webster to continue his position as the chief of the TTC. Thank you for your time.
