City council rejects Grimes’ development incentives for Mimico DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com Toronto council has quashed a plan by Etobicoke-Lakeshore Councillor Mark Grimes to provide dramatic incentives for developers to build housing on the Mimico shoreline. Council voted to eliminate a set of recommendations put forward by Grimes at Etobicoke York Community Council’s last meeting, that could have given developers a break on a range of responsibilities – including development charges, heritage considerations or requirements to replace rental housing already in place. Grimes argued that the incentives are necessary to persuade the owners of the low-rise rental buildings that extend south from Lake Shore Boulevard to the lake, to assemble the lands and redevelop them. He argued that while the waterfront address might be desirable, the land there isn’t going to be redeveloped without help. “It’s not going to change until we

“There really isn’t any reason to incent residential development in the city – particularly not on the waterfront.” - Jennifer Keesmaat, Toronto’s chief planner come up with some unique policies on how to fix it,” said Grimes. “The owners have sat on these properties forever and ever... We have to encourage assembly to make something happen.” City staff have been working since last fall on a secondary plan for the Mimico-By-The-Lake neighbourhoods. Toronto’s chief planner Jennifer Keesmaat told council that in her view, incentives to develop beyond the obvious benefits of the lakefront lands would be “unwarranted.” “There really isn’t any reason to >>>EXPLORING, page 12

Future development needs to be linked to transit plans RAHUL GUPTA rgupta@insidetoronto.com A senior Toronto architect applauds Chief Planner Jennifer Keesmaat’s call for mid-level development projects with strong links to public transit. But David Butterworth said he wants to see Keesmaat and the city planning department settle various planning “ambiguities” regarding the building of six- to eight-storey buildings along major avenues in the city. “If Jennifer is really suggesting this then she’s got to allow some flexibility and freedom within the mid-rise guidelines,” said Butterworth, a senior designer for firm Kirkor Architects and Planners. Speaking this month, Butterworth said the type of European-style development Keesmaat envisions for Toronto could create new creative opportunities for designers. He said such planning would facilitate the transformation of certain suburban neighbourhoods into local “satellite cores,” walkable urban areas with opportunities for office and retail space and connected via public between 2006 and 2010, the TTC had planned to run an advertising campaign encouraging flexible commute times. The campaign, however, never ended up launching. Chris Upfold, TTC chief of customer service, acknowledged some benefits in a campaign to encourage shifting commute times to off-peak periods. But he balked at the prospect of getting the TTC to

transit to the downtown core. Building with transit in mind would, according to Butterworth, ease pressure on the Toronto and region’s transit systems, which, presently, is dealing with overcrowding and traffic congestion. Keesmaat has frequently stated her support of a lowrise future for Toronto that could handle the growing city’s needs without raising the ire of local communities concerned about condominium towers changing the landscape of the neighbourhood. At a recent speech at the at the Toronto Board of Trade, Keesmaat encouraged shifting focus from single-family residences to higher density mixedgrowth housing, particularly outside of the downtown core. Butterworth said developers might be interested in building mid-level buildings in areas near major transit connections but only if they can make it work financially. “Why is anyone going to knock down a two- or threestorey building just to build six?” he said. ~ with files from David Nickle approach employers. “I think we can do something to help our customers understand what their options are, and where it might be busier. But aiming a campaign at employers is not a TTC issue,” said Upfold. Instead, he said the TTC would likely focus on benefits to customers, who could then inform their employers about the benefits of altering their commute times.

Mayor Ford will spin results of tax vote

The Guardian is a member of the Ontario Press Council. Visit ontpress.com

To the editor: It is true that Rob Ford promised to eliminate the land transfer tax when he campaigned as the mayor. I am wondering whether he is having second thoughts about losing the ‘gravy’ of around $350 million per year. In all probabilities, the 10 per cent will pass the vote of councillors but not the full amount. In which case, when he again runs for the office of mayor, Ford can say ‘I tried to wipe it out, but all that council would support me on was the 10 per cent reduction.’ Joy Taylor

Time to think of alternatives to improve commute

A

s commuting woes continue across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA), it’s time for everyone who has a stake in moving people around to come together and start talking about solutions beyond spending billions of dollars to build new rapid transit lines in the coming decades. We need to start thinking of alternatives, ones that can be quickly implemented and will see an immediate impact on not only the ways in which we move people around the GTHA, but also the cost of doing it. In the case of the TTC, it can be as simple as altering the times we use the system for our daily commute. Former TTC chair Adam Giambrone said a huge amount of costs the TTC incurs for rush-hour service could be saved if riders could spread out the times they commute. The TTC is in “a perpetual our view budget crisis” in which it is essentially penalized by higher costs New ideas linked to its increases in ridership during rush hours. Shifting needed for commute times by as little as 30 better transit minutes could alleviate some of those costs, and it’s a solution many businesses seem willing to offer their employees. Also, some foresight into future planning can lessen demands on the public transit system and also help lower operating costs. Toronto’s Chief Planner Jennifer Keesmaat is championing plans for greater intensification of the city’s major streets, with more multi-use buildings of six to seven storeys, which would feature residential, retail and office units all within the same structures. It seems like such a simple concept, get people living closer to where they work so they can avoid longer commutes. But we have to build it before they will come, and right now that’s the opposite of the way land development and planning works in the GTHA. Our roads and transit are full of people riding packed buses or driving long distances to industrial and manufacturing areas located far from residential communities. The same goes for downtown congestion as thousands rush in and out of the core each weekday, jamming an already congested subway system and major roads. We need to come up with some new and better ideas. Our feature in today’s paper, Intelligent Transit, looks at some of these proposals, and we hope it encourages readers to come up some of their own ideas. newsroom

Council’s frailties more obvious than ever

I

n case anyone had any doubt, Mayor Rob Ford is as good as invulnerable. On Monday, the mayor, his brother and his lawyer went to the city’s compliance audit committee and asked they not be made to face prosecution over a compliance audit report that showed he’d overspent his campaign allowance by $40,000. When the committee agreed, the mayor escaped the second of two legal problems that could have seen him barred from office. Add to that his victory in the libel lawsuit levelled against him by the owner of the Boardwalk Cafe, and the mayor is three for three. It’s a remarkable feat, although it’s one that has been entirely consistent with Ford’s ability to deal with issues that would wipe out most politicians. Then again, most politicians would find them-

THE CITY

selves rejuvinated – their mandate and influence effectively renewed. I wouldn’t bet on that in the case of Ford and the council that has long ago ceased to recognize his leadership. Council in particular seems to have descended into a lame-duck morass, not so very different from the final year of mayor David Miller’s mandate, when he made it clear he wouldn’t run again: a forum that too easily descends into posturing, positioning and vendetta-voting. The February council meeting illustrated this all too well. Council spent its first day whether to debate a walk-on item about the

shelter system and tried to put one of Mayor Ford’s harshest critics onto the mayor’s executive. They went on to browbeat two of the city’s accountability officers, debate whether to let newcomers here illegally use services the city offers regardless of citizenship (and then claim victory on that basis) and put off deciding what to do with an Etobicoke hockey arena. Finally, after extending the meeting to a punishingly long evening session, they made a token sensible decision, and voted to shut down a plan by Councillor Mark Grimes to offer developers incentives to build condominiums on the waterfront. That, added to a quick motion by Councillor Paula Fletcher to formalize grace periods for parking-permit holders in the downtown neighbourhoods, represented the bulk of the collective wisdom of council this month.

But generally, the leaderless crew ran the meeting with all the grace of a sugared-up daycare full of three-year-olds trying to drive a minivan. There is no obvious mechanism for this to change. The mayor returns a survivor, but no more a bridge-builder than he ever was. Council remains an unorganized agglomeration of ambition. The city government as a whole continues to be unworthy of the fine city that it’s charged with. To put it another way: Mayor Ford may be as strong as he’s ever been; but the real frailties of Toronto’s municipal government have never been more apparent. n David Nickle is The Guardian’s City Hall reporter.

Exploring development incentives would set bad precedent: councillors

>>>from page 1 incent residential development in the city – particularly not on the waterfront,” said Keesmaat. “The issue when development isn’t taking place in a neighbourhood, is speculation or built form. Exploring tax incentives or waiving development fees would in fact be an unusual or unwarranted incentive.” Grimes’ letter requested staff to simply explore those incentives. But councillors

said even doing that would be a step toward creating a precedent that could be damaging in neighbourhoods across the city. Scarborough-Agincourt Councillor Mike Del Grande held down the item and moved the motion to strike Grimes’ recommendations. “If we have to incent people on the waterfront then you know what? We’re not getting enough in development charges in the city,” said Del

Grande. S c a r b o r o u g h C e n t re Councillor Glenn De Baeremaeker called Grimes’ plan “a dangerous, foolish path.” “We can all help Councillor Grimes do spectacular things on his waterfront – but we shouldn’t commit hari-kari on the waterfront to do it,” he said. Council supported Del Grande’s motion with a vote of 28-7.

All funds raised goes back into program >>>from page 1 of funds. The result? The upcoming 1st Annual Student Success Fundraiser – a special evening of musical and comedic performances, dinner, a fashion show, as well as a silent auction, a 50/50 draw and door prizes. All proceeds generated from the Saturday, April 6 event, Brown said, will be directed right back into programming for the 85 youth aged 13 to 19 that her programs serve under the umbrella Trust 15 organization. “All the money is going back into the program because it works,” she said, lamenting the recent deaths of three 15-year-old boys to gun violence in the last month in Toronto. “This is why I do these types of programs, so I can keep my young men and women off the street and show them the right way of life and keep them off the wrong path. A lot of them don’t have father figures in their lives...but here, I connect them with mentors – and it’s working.” The Men of Distinction, comprised of 35 teen boys

from North Albion Collegiate Institute, gather each Tuesday after school for sessions with male mentors specially selected by Brown to help guide them on the road from boyhood to manhood by helping them to follow in the mentors’ successful footsteps. Current mentors with the program include Kevin Williams, CEO of General Motors Canada, and Toronto Police Services Deputy Chief Peter Sloly – both of whom will act as special guest speakers at April’s Student Success Fundraiser. Ladies on the Rise Likewise, the 50 members of Ladies on the Rise – who hail from a variety of local schools – meet every Wednesday after school at North Kipling Junior Middle School. Sometimes the girls welcome inspiring guest speakers like Etobicoke North MP Kirsty Duncan, while others go on field trips to the Nubian Book Club and the ROM, and still other times Brown – a TDSB educational assistant and a 2011 recipient of a Premier’s

Award for Teaching Excellence – and her Ladies on the Rise partner Angela Ingram hand the leadership reins over to the girls themselves to run their own show. “Both programs are all about mentorship – mentorship for youth in the community who don’t have the means or ability to do certain things in life,” Brown said. The 1st Annual Student Success Fundraiser will be held on April 6 starting at 5:30 p.m. at North Kipling C o m m u n i t y C e n t re, 2 Rowntree Rd. For the cost of a $65 ticket, guests will be treated to an evening of dinner and entertainment, including the comedic stylings of Jay Martin, a musical performance by the Rexdale Outreach Choir, a fashion show by Ambitious Women, as well as spoken word and poetry presentations. For tickets and more information, go to www.trust15. com or contact Marcia Brown at marcia.brown@trust15.com or 416-427-5398. Tax receipts will be issued by the DAREarts Foundation.

CLIENT’S CORNER!

GORGEOUS MILLWOOD MODEL!!

Dear Frank, Thank you for you and Mark being there for me in helping me find my new home. Like you said, purchasing a home can be quite stressful, but we managed to get over the first and biggest hurdle, and that was “finding a place”. I think we must have looked at least 30 places and I really appreciate Mark’s patience with me. He has been so helpful that near the end I was feeling guilty for putting the poor guy through all this running around back and forth to the same building till I was satisfied. Regardless, he kept his cool and delivered. Thanks for the “lovely parting gifts”(as all the game show hosts from the 70’s used to say that). I will be putting them all to good use. Thank you. I know this obviously will not be the last time we talk or email. I’m sure we’ll strike up conversation in the future and still maintain the friendship we’ve had the past 20 plus years. I have a sense that Mark and I will also probably be in contact with each other frequently on a friendship basis as well. Thanks again, Tony M

Mayor Ford avoids charges over compliance audit DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com Mayor Rob Ford won’t be facing any prosecution over a

compliance audit of his 2010 election expenses, despite having been found by auditors to have overspent his limit by three per cent.

The city’s compliance audit committee voted 2-1 not to proceed with charges after hearing from lawyers for Ford and for a citizens group who

Mayor Rob Ford with his brother, Councillor Doug Ford, address the media last Friday after the mayor learned an audit committee decided not to prosecute him for an alleged breach of the Municipal Elections Act dealing with overspending during his 2010 mayoral campaign. ������� ��� ����� ��������� ������ ��� ��������������������� ��� ���� ���� ��������

had brought the initial complaint forward in 2011. The citizens, Adam ChalefFreudenthaler and Max Reed, said Ford’s campaign had improperly borrowed money from a family holding company, Doug Ford Holdings, to the tune of $70,000. As well, they said the campaign had accepted some donations improperly and began spending on the campaign before Ford had registered as a candidate. They also said he had received donations in-kind in the form of a deal on the rental of a motor home for campaign uses, and at several fundraisers. The resulting compliance audit found that on the basis of some of these complaints, the campaign had overspent by $40,000 – or three per cent. L a w y e r He i d i Ru b i n argued they would be giving the mayor a “very generous benefit of the doubt” if they didn’t send the matter to a prosecutor. She pointed out it would be in the public interest to prosecute Ford. “When a fifth-time candidate violates election laws... it must be in the public interest to see the matter forward to prosecution,” she said. Ford’s lawyer Tom Barlow argued that any contraventions were more in the manner of filing errors, and that the public interest would

not in fact be served by prosecuting – particularly when it seemed likely there would be significant penalty even if Ford were to be found to have contravened the Municipal Elections Act. And he slapped down Rubin’s argument that Ford ought to have known about the election spending rules as they applied to a mayoralty race.

The three-member committee was not unanimous. Member John Hollins, a former Ontario chief electoral officer, moved a motion to commence legal proceedings immediately – but both other members refused to even second the motion. Finally, the committee voted to receive the report and take no further action – effectively ending the matter

“I’m happy the process is finally over. I’m happy the committee understands we ran a clean, professional, above-board campaign. ” ~ Mayor Rob Ford

“When the applicant says the mayor is an experienced candidate: yes he is, but for council,” said Barlow. But Ford was “still a rookie” when it came to running a mayoral campaign. He said a mayoralty campaign is like none other in the country – with the mayor receiving more votes than the Prime Minister does. Barlow also pointed out any lessons about election spending have already been learned. “The media has made sure everybody who cares to know, knows about what’s happened,” he said. “The likely consequence of this would only be a fine.”

for the mayor. Ford and his brother Doug Ford, who served as campaign manager, watched the proceedings silently. Later, in the mayor’s office, Ford delivered a prepared statement before leaving without taking questions from the press. “O bv i o u s l y I ’m v e r y pleased with the compliance audit committee’s decision,” he said. “I’m happy the process is finally over. I’m happy the committee understands we ran a clean, professional, above-board campaign. We made every effort to comply with all the rules; every time there was any doubt, we asked for clarification.”

The TTC unveiled its new bus stop poles at its recent board meeting, which provides improved stop information.

New-look TTC bus stop poles, maps help riders find their way around city RAHUL GUPTA rgupta@insidetoronto.com At its regular monthly board meeting Monday afternoon the TTC unveiled new-look bus stop poles and maps for its bus shelters. While the physical poles will not be replaced, the new decals will give the objects a more consistent look as well as improved stop information, said Chris Upfold the TTC’s head of customer service, during a presentation to the board. The new designs will be on display on a trial basis along the 94 Wellesley bus route beginning at the end of this week. The three types of poles presented employ colour-coded numbers for every route the stop serves. For example, regular routes are displayed within a black background. There are also special badges indicating if the route has any unique characteristics such as late night or express service. In addition, the newly designed poles display Next Bus arrival information for riders making use of the realtime vehicle prediction service. The designs also include the TTC logo which is not always identified on the estimated 3,000 stop poles currently in use. Following the meeting, Upfold said the decision to keep the existing infrastruc-

ture was made to help reduce the cost of the rebranding and to preserve the iconic look of the round “barrel-topped” poles, which suffered more from consistency than anything else. “They’re a nice part of TTC infrastructure in terms of what our brand is,” said Upfold. “They’re unique and by keeping them we can save some money.” The chief failing of the current poles according to surveyed riders is they don’t display what route the stop serves, said Upfold. “That’s the most critical piece of information riders are looking for,” he said. Unlike current shelter maps, which contain the entire TTC system on one map, the new maps are customized to present information pertaining to local destinations with less links to the transit system as a whole. There is also a colourcoded chart which shows route information and the times of day they serve. The full TTC subway map is also displayed as an inset. But that concerns transit watcher Steve Munro, who thinks the maps will prove more confusing despite their cleaner presentation. “On one hand they’re trying to be a local area way-finding map but they’re not showing anything besides street infor-

mation,” said Munro. “By discarding the general system map, they’re losing a lot of the context on the outer parts of routes.” He said the issue wouldn’t be as serious in neighbourhoods with less service but could prove a problem in more heavily populated areas such as the intersection of Yonge Street and Finch Avenue. “You’re better off keeping a route map that shows a larger part of the city,” said Munro. During the trial period the TTC will solicit feedback from riders, which Upfold expects to last for at least a few months. He said the TTC was also examining how to better and more cost efficiently display route map and schedule information currently contained inside “info posts” which are located at some bus stops. Upfold also said the TTC wants to expand from 50 the amount of stops containing Next Bus digital displays and is looking to have that cost incorporated in future capital budgets. TTC board members generally supported the new designs, but Scarborough Centre Councillor Glenn De Bareremaeker called for prominent local destinations and attractions to be included in the final map designs.
