Unlike U.S. cities, Toronto has been stuck with the bill for settling refugees, public housing, transit, and sheltering homeless people attracted to the city from all over Canada, Lastman said.

The process would require a successful referendum, the approval of eight provinces and changes to the Canadian Constitution to renegotiate federal and provincial relations and establish Toronto's representation in the House of Commons.
