TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/27/14 -- Editors note: There is a photo associated with this release.
When and Where: 3:00 PM Tuesday May 27th, Tip Top Board Room, 637 Lake Shore Blvd. W.
The campaign promises that won the Toronto Mayor seat for Rob Ford with almost 50% of the popular vote in 2010 are still on the voters' minds.
Ford Nation rejoice! The 'New Rob Ford' Candidate is launching his campaign promising Property Tax freeze, elimination of the Land Transfer Tax, full support for building subway lines, Anti-Corruption Commission (similar to the 'Charbonneau Commission' in Montreal), further contracting out City services and cutting City staff through attrition. The 'New Ford' intends to organize an Online Referenda for all major issues this City faces: City Airport expansion, Repair vs. Bury the Gardiner, Subway vs. LRT, further privatize (or not) the Garbage Collection. Total Transparency for every tax-dollar spent and anti-corruption measures are the most effective methods for cost cutting efforts.
No, this is not the actual Rob Ford returning from rehab. Toronto's fiscally conservative voters now have a new star Candidate: Michael Nicula. Michael has a better education; he is a CPA (designated Accountant), Executive MBA and an Architect. Professionally, he is an IT Entrepreneur specialized in Human Resources and Payroll systems for large organizations including Unionized Public Sector.
Michael is 43 years old, married, and has an 18 year old daughter. He lives downtown near the waterfront and bikes to his office in Chinatown. Michael is fit, healthy, drug-free, well-behaved, and has never been in jail - not even for a visit.
In addition to the great promises made by Ford in 2010, Michael has a plan to bring $5 billion annually to the City of Toronto: the 'City Income Rebate'. Michael believes that all Canadian taxpayers are paying enough taxes already; the problem is that 90% of the tax burden goes to the Federal and Provincial governments. The plan is to rally taxpayers and Mayors across the nation to force the higher governments to provide a $2500 Income Tax Rebate for each Canadian household, money that would go to the City or Town of residence.
Michael Nicula: "I say let's Stop the Gravy Tanker!! I see a great inequity in the fact that Canadian cities and towns are burdened with huge infrastructure, environmental, economic and social problems, yet are receiving only 10% of the taxes we pay. My message to Kathleen Wynne and Stephen Harper: give the cities and towns at least another 10% so they can maintain our communities properly."
Michael is the Leader of a federally registered political party PACT - Party for Accountability, Competency and Transparency. PACT advocates for putting competent people in office, total transparency at all levels of government, direct consultation with the taxpayers via Online Referenda and Town Hall meetings, but most importantly, bringing Accountability to elected offices everywhere. All PACT Candidates must sign the 'Accountability Oath' in front of a lawyer, pledging to act in accordance with the will of the majority on any issues where Quorum (15%) and Majority (53%) conditions are met. Any broken promises or disregard of taxpayers' will would lead to resignation.
Michael: "Toronto residents must demand accountability from their elected officials. Right now I am not represented in the Parliament because the MP for Trinity Spadina, Ms. Olivia Chow, has quit her seat with just over a year left in her term, burdening taxpayers with almost 1 million dollars in cost of the By-Elections in my riding. Rob Ford has betrayed his voters by behaving in a despicable manner, and not implementing his elections promises fully and properly. Both these major Candidates show, in my opinion, lack of Accountability. I believe Toronto deserves a better Mayor and that is why I am running."
At the National Ethnic Press roundtable yesterday, Michael spoke passionately about his plan to bring Accountability, Competency and Transparency to the City Hall. Press representatives are invited to meet with Michael this afternoon. Those who cannot attend are invited to schedule separate interviews in person or via videolink or phone.
