It seems Mayor Tory is silent on this and is by default, siding with the Premier. If no one speaks up, there will be no planning - no public benefits, no affordability, minimal parks, no schools, etc. City staff and our elected reps have been pushed aside by the Province. Who is doing the negotiating for community and City benefits? Sadly, this is an developer-planned MZO according to staff, see pg 2 https://www.toronto.ca/legdocs/mmis/2021/ph/bgrd/backgroundfile-168262.pdf

You have all gone for the bait and switch, discussing final design issues which will be ignored, while the addition of res to this development serves one purpose - to confer to the developer a gift worth close to $1 billion in future profits, without any disclosure of what the public gets in return, and without any regard for planning issues - especially traffic associated with 6,000 new residents (one new intersection at Broadview and Lakeshore and improvements at Don Roadway, but no new highway off ramps to the east, so nothing to cope with 6,000 residents and the 'promise' of 10 million square feet of office). Meanwhile the existing neighbourhood and City taxpayers will bear the brunt of this and the above ground subway, which facilitates a little extra space on the site for these residential units. Hired hacks are used to poison public meetings with comments like "don't worry about those entitled existing local residents". Who to consider then? The wealthy developer interests who live elsewhere? The only real issue here is why is the Ford Government dictating this neighbourhood design? Is the City government of Toronto irrelevant? Cornwall has more power.
