The Elusive Regional Moment: Toronto's Search for Metropolitan Governance

Speaker: Zack Taylor, MCIP RPP
March 10, 2010, 2-4pm
Room 208N, North House
Munk Centre for International Studies, University of Toronto
1 Devonshire Place

As recently as the 1980s, Toronto was hailed around the world as a successful model of metropolitan government. Today, our region is a model of the type of fragmentation that metropolitan government was created to resolve. What happened, and why?

Zack will discuss the current state of affairs by focusing on the interplay of ideas, interests, and institutional legacies over the past century. While Toronto is the focus, the presentation will also compare experiments in metropolitan governance in other North American metropolitan regions.

Zack Taylor is the 2010 recipient of the Blanche and Sandy van Ginkel Graduate Fellowship in Municipal Finance and Governance funded by Diamante Development Corporation.
