Former city councillor Jim Karygiannis — removed from office over election expense violations — will not be entitled to severance, city officials confirmed Thursday. According to Chapter 223 of the Toronto Municipal Code, the politician is not eligible for a cash kissoff because his seat became vacant “by reason of the operation of any Act of … the legislature of the province of Ontario.”
