Mayor Sam Katz's sudden interest in having half of executive policy committee elected by city council is more of a political stunt than a genuine attempt to make city hall more democratic.

EPC is a powerful committee. EPC also selects the chief administrative officer, the city clerk, the chief financial officer and the city auditor, although their recommendations must be approved by council.

For starters, why half? If Katz was truly interested in making EPC more democratic, why not have all six (EPC can't be larger than 50% of city council, so with the mayor, it's currently made up of seven) elected by council? Katz wants a little more democracy at city hall, but not too much?

Actually, Katz hasn't done a very good job as mayor of consensus building. There's been a mass exodus of EPC members over the years and Katz has been at loggerheads with many councillors on a variety of issues. So maybe the mayor is right, allowing council to elect three of the six EPC members won't change anything, at least not under his watch.
