Filling potholes and freezing property taxes?

What will Murray be remembered for? The controversial Esplinade Riel? Kick starting the first attempt to build rapid transit? I'm not saying Murray was perfect, but he tried to push the city to do something different. Can't say the same for Katz, Thompson, or Norrie. Not since Juba have we seen any vision from our mayors.

I agree with this, and well said
