City of Toronto finds way around environmental laws for new developments

It seems the City of Toronto Planning department has found a way around environmental assessment laws.

In the monster condo development now in its latest form at 378 units including 2 properties on Pacific Avenue, along Bloor Street West for the whole block and another 5 properties on Oakmount Road, right across from High Park. The city's planning department has deemed the property NOT to be adjacent to High Park, (in spite of being a whole block directly across the street), and so not needing an environmental assessment.

Kyoyo Protocol = Wake-up Call

Today, Canadians shouldn’t feel shame; they should be angry, betrayed and saddened at the diminishment of Canada, at home and around the world, by this government. By their action during the climate change conference in Durban, South Africa.

Every Canadian. Any political affiliation. Any region. Any religion, Any race. Any ability.
