Toronto's new chief planner outlines her vision for the future of urban development here and across the country.
“The passion Canadians have for their cities is palpable. But so is the frustration, and the sense that we continue to miss the mark. We need new planning paradigms that entwine our cities and regions, we need clarity about what it will cost to make the public infrastructure investments that we require, and we need to embrace new, creative financing models.”
—Toronto’s newly installed chief planner, Jennifer Keesmaat, writing in the Globe and Mail today about her vision for the city and her understanding of the most urgent challenges we face.
