...folks will be able to save their money and come here instead of going to Ontario Place. 😸

Don't get why they keep showing the pedestrian bridge along with a note that it's not within the "project scope".

Who pays for it? Developers via section 37 $$?

The bridges and additional Waterfront Promenade are a separate project, grouped together.

The bridge is shown simply because it is intended to be there in the finished product; but it's being delivered so to speak, separately.

Wow that does look really amazing. It looks like there will be a park beside it as well from another development?

And it would be amazing if the bridges project finally gets funding: providing a more continuous walk along the water would be a major asset giving it a wholeness, giving it literal highpoints along the way over each slip where everyone will get a better feel for the harbour as a whole by just being a little higher above it… and by taking pressure off the chokepoints at the end of each slip now, which are crazy busy on summer weekends. (The Lake Shore bike lane needs to be finished too, to get the high-speed cyclists out of the chokepoints, so that it' just more easy-going recreational cyclists on the Harbourfront section of the Martin Goodman Trail.) Anyway, all of that needs attention, and they've let it go so long now, I'm concerned the bridges will never be undertaken. It certainly feels like they may never be…

FARM committee is meeting this week and Parliament Slip is on the agenda.

A report before the Ctte seeks approval to advance to 60% design for the Lake Fill portion of the project using land revenues of WT pending full government approval of the larger project.
