City manager Chris Murray emailed Mayor John Tory and Toronto's 25 councillors the grim bombshell, the result of city staff number-crunching, on Thursday.

Premier Doug Ford's child-care cuts and policy changes are expected to cost the City of Toronto $84.8 million this year alone and jeopardize 6,166 subsidized daycare spaces for low-income parents, according to city staff calculations.

"Ask Torontonians what makes life unaffordable; it's housing and child-care," said Councillor Gord Perks before details in the city manager's email were known.
