Under the new regulations, food trucks can be within 30 metres of a brick and mortar restaurant. The previous rules stated 50 metres.

The vote will likely mean more food trucks on the streets, making Torontonians craving a hot dog, burger or any other classic food truck food winners.

“It has been a bit like making sausages over time, if you’ll pardon the reference to food. But I think we’re ending up in a place that is closer to the right place,’’ Mayor John Tory said in council before the vote.

But it wouldn't be Toronto City Council unless there was a fight over an item on the agenda, now would it?

The motion passed 43 to 1 with only Coun. Giorgio Mammoliti, an ally of former Mayor Rob Ford, voting against. Coun. Mammoliti said the new regulations is unfair to small restaurants, according to the National Post.
