Twitter’s 140 character limit (and the heat of the moment) is biting me in the ass. When I posted this:
This Ford election just proves that the broader the pool, the lower the common denominator. I want my old Toronto borders back.
What I meant was this:
The priorities of a broad geographic area will tend towards those few areas where different groups overlap. These overlaps do not by definition mean that they are good for society. Rather that they are common.
IMO, the pre-amalgamation borders allowed for better allocation of funds to the priorities of the constituencies served.
In retrospect, I should have read that through before hitting post.
