VoteToronto found Norm Kelly to have one of the worst voting records on council. Kelly’s record is stunningly bad. He was on the TTC board and yet voted against public transit, he was a loud supporter of the Island Airport expansion and the bridge, claiming the airport should have jets and up to 5 million passengers a year, he believes in privatizing water, waste and public housing. Add to this list Kelly’s love of junkets paid for by the public, and you have a councillor who borders on being dangerous. His membership of the conservative wing of council will bring discredit to that group. Kelly was recently a member of the 'Keep the Chief' campaign to renew the contract of Police Chief Julian Fantino.
Norm Kelly is on the Community Services Committee and the Toronto Community Housing Corporation Board.
