Ever since Premier Doug Ford announced his desire to cut the size of Toronto council, there's been a lot of talk about dysfunction at Toronto city hall — and a lot of that dysfunction can be blamed squarely on one councillor: Giorgio Mammoliti.

He's a master of sparking chaos, and is responsible for some of the most frustrating moments at city hall over the last four years.

At a meeting of the city's public works committee in May, he brazenly and successfully took the $1 billion Finch West light rail project hostage, threatening to leave the meeting and break quorum unless the committee supported his move to delay approval for work on the project.
