"Ford claims that he listens to people but he doesn't"

Riders dismayed at bus route cuts - thestar.com
One of the main planks of Rob Ford's mayoral platform was that of service. He also promised that he would not cut service in his pursuit of penny-pinching. He said "I assure you services will not be cut. I will guarantee it."
Well, his first budget aims to cut service. 53% of Torontonians who voted know that he was lying and didn't vote for him. 47% of Torontonians who voted, fell for his obvious lies and voted for him.

One service that will be greatly felt will be reduced TTC services - mainly on a number of bus routes - service will be either totally cut after a certain time, or reduced. One area that will receive less service will be his old ward in Etobicoke.

Here is a map that one blogger created showing the specific routes that will have reduced service:

One of the service cuts planned would be the total elimination of the 101 Downsview bus from May to September. This puts the Toronto Roller Derby League in jeopardy.
