Former Councillor Christin Carmichael Greb describes Toronto Public Health (TPH) as a “left-wing cash cow” where pet projects are rampant and accountability is non-existent.

Greb — who sat on the board of health and its budget committee until the spring of 2017 — said Wednesday she’s been very “angry” with the hyperbole and fear mongering coming from Mayor John Tory, Councillor Joe Cressy and others about the impact of changes to provincial cost-sharing arrangements.

Greb says Foodshare and the Angel Foundation (at the Toronto Catholic board) are essentially handed money from the city that is distributed to individual school volunteers, who go to the grocery store and buy a bunch of food.
Foodshare’s statement of operations for the year ended Dec. 31, 2017 (the latest posted) show that 67% of its $6.5-million budget went to administration and overhead; just 28% to produce and catering. Greb says the nutrition programs are open to the entire school if the board determines they require them, even to those children who don’t need the breakfasts. She adds that there is no standard set for what food should be served.
“How do we account for the money we spend Is food being wasted or left over… we don’t know,” she said, noting that when she asked questions at the board of health she was perceived as uncaring. “There’s no accounting for that or reporting back as to whether that (waste) happens.”
