“I'm just very passionate about this. I believe this in my bones,” Kolberg told Narcity via video call.

"I posted a video about it on Twitter yesterday and everyone seems to agree with me. So I think they should do it. I think they’ve got to get to it right now.”

Responding to getting name-dropped in the video, Mayor John Tory posted his own video explaining that his powers as mayor don't allow for him to single-handedly get the movie theatre built, but he would be prepared to consider a free popcorn mandate.
