Peter Tabuns MPP, Toronto-Danforth

Government of Ontario

Respect for Local Planning

TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO:

WHEREAS the Ford government did not notify City of Toronto staff or City Councillors prior to issuing Ministerial Zoning Orders for three sites in the West Don Lands;

WHEREAS these orders sidestep the local planning process and shutter community input;

WHEREAS local planning should be driven by local communities and the long-term public interest, not dictated by heavy handed orders from the province;

THEREFORE, we the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to:

Call on the provincial government to stop its lobbyist-driven MZOs in the West Don Lands and elsewhere, and restore transparent and evidence-based planning that includes public consultation and respect for heritage conservation, the environment and local decision-making.
