Yep, your dad's got it right.
There's nothing wrong with Buffalo that couldn't be cured by a lowering of property taxes and reduction in the size and scope of village, town, county and city government.
Toronto organized itself into a metropolitan district back in the 1960's and that also helped reduce duplication of Govt services. So social services don't have to suffer.
Sorry this is boring most of you to tears. Blame U.B. and WNY public schools.
