Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam and I have submitted a motion to free Toronto’s planning decisions from the purview of the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) – the quasi-judicial, anti-democratic body that has final say over local planning decisions.
This motion will be debated at the Wednesday, November 8th meeting of the Planning and Growth Committee. At this meeting, there will be an opportunity for you to provide input to that committee by making a deputation or, if you cannot attend, email or letter. To sign up to make a deputation, or for further information, you can contact the clerk on the committee’s website.
It is time to protect the fabric and character of our local neighbourhoods and allow our elected representatives to have the final say on the future of Toronto’s neighbourhoods. This is your opportunity to make your voice heard!
