Mayor David Miller: "Let us be fierce and proud defenders of the public interest"
Mayor David Miller set out his vision for an open, accountable city government
today in his inaugural speech.

His speech highlighted the importance of neighbourhoods, of cleaning up the
city, and of opening up City Hall to encourage civic engagement. Mayor Miller
challenged Toronto City Council to "move forward into the new term with respect
for the people of Toronto, with confidence in ourselves, and with the resolve
to leave this city better - more beautiful - than we found it."

The Mayor's remarks included his plan to open up the City's budget process by
inviting advance input from communities, his intention to work with other big
city mayors in order to advance a national urban agenda, and his vision for a
clean, green waterfront.

The full text of Mayor Miller's inaugural address is available at the City of
Toronto Web site,
