    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    This is good news, I'm not pro-Ford at all but the more work we can get done on this before next election, the better.

    Rogers Centre Renovations

    I feel like a translucent roof is a pipe dream at this point. I don't even know how feasible it is to do that work in one off-season. If we want natural light inside by removing some portion of the 500 level walls, replacing them with glazing it also seems like unrealistic work. But there...

    Zoning Reform Ideas

    Would love to see the government implement some sort of tax on housing purchases that are refunded/waived if the buyer (source of the purchase funds) pays income taxes in Ontario.

    I wonder how much lower they came in then reputable outfits.

    St Lawrence Market

    I'm normally anti-nimby but I think I'm ok with it. This is one of the few areas of the City that actually has a historical feel, and some noticeable historic architecture. Even when they slap giant towers on top of the retained historic facades it doesn't really do much.

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    Those traffic projections are horrendous, but the project is necessary. It's a very difficult spot to be in. But as with others, I have almost zero faith in Tory and the downtown councilors ability to do anything beneficial here.

    Zoning Reform Ideas

    Have you seen how many "developers" there are who buy post-war bungalows and turn them into huge mansions? Those same developers would pivot into building small multiplexes. I don't know if anybody would build true midrise style buildings. But we have lots of contractors capable of buying up a...

    Rogers Centre Renovations

    I think you're right that it might actually be good in the short term as long as Shapiro is here. But it could get disasterous in the long term.

    Can't wait to get my hopes up on this one before having my soul crushed when most of the awful councilors vote it down.

    Reading that article what shocked me most was how much development was in the 8-15 unit range. That is what the City of Toronto desperately needs.

    St Lawrence Market

    This "park" is basically a den for homeless people at the moment. It's hard for me to see this changing. I don't love any of the options but I suppose #1 is best. 3 is interesting, but not super functional.

    St Lawrence Market

    Not surprising, the City has no idea what to do, and no real other options. Once they put the shelter here, they aren't going to move it somewhere else and piss off more residents.

    St Lawrence Market

    I honestly don't know what can be done to get more attention from the City on the issues in the area. There are already MANY vocal residents. I wonder if City staff are just ignoring the calls/emails because they are so frequent.

    St Lawrence Market

    Why do the local councilors not fight against these types of projects in the SLM like they would in other areas of the City? The east end of downtown already houses a disproportionate share of social services compared to other areas in the City. They need to spread things out.

    Inclusionary Zoning By-Law

    Jesus, Toronto is hopeless.
