Canada: Toronto Councillor suggest petitioner-pays recall law
Scarborough councillor Chin Lee is pushing for recalls in Toronto, but wants petitioners to pay for any efforts. We've seen this type of provision before (notably in West Virginia). Lee's bill would make petitioners pay 75% of the cost -- for a councillor, $187,500. For a Mayor, $5.25 million.
