Letter to CCQLD Members

Oct. 7/12
Hello Everyone.
I am writing to tell you about our all candidates meeting to be held at Blantyre Public School on Monday October 20th at 7pm.
This will be your best chance to meet the candidates running in Ward 36 and find out where they stand on the development of the Quarry Lands, specifically, how they will STOP GCD from building towers in the eastern portion of the land.
As you are aware, the city and its arms length development agency Build is proposing to build low rise condos and a large format retail outlet in the western portion towards Victoria Park, but as a result of 1960’s era zoning and a lack of vision and fortitude at Toronto City Hall, GCD has received permission from the OMB to build 20-25 storey towers in the east.
While there has been no activity for some time, the threat is real and the developer is in a position to apply for a building permit and begin construction.
We strongly encourage you to come to the debate and decide for yourself which candidate will best represent our needs and put responsible community building first.
Yours Truly,
  Tim Weber
