Donald Blair, Toronto City Council Candidate for Ward 44, announced his support for the community's rejection of further development projects, and proposed a 4-year moratorium on all development in Ward 44.
"Our current councillor and her staff support the construction of more homes, more condos, and without any place to school the children who will live here, no improvement to public transit or our road infrastructure, and with the lack of an indoor shopping mall," said Donald Blair. "Our previous councillor was no different."
Donald Blair is also opposed to the construction of a new condominium at Dean Park Road in the Meadowvale/Hwy. 401 area of Scarborough.
"Scarborough residents, especially those in my ward, want a councillor who will look after the existing population first. We are losing parks and forested area to more development," said Donald Blair, referring to the recent decision by the councillor's office to construct a 68-home project in the Manse Valley wooded area, despite promises to protect the land.
"We need to save green space before it's all gone so our children can enjoy it," said Donald Blair. "We need to protect the Wanita property, the Manse Valley property, build the Highland Creek community centre and provide resources the community has spent 15 years asking for," said Donald Blair. "I will not approve any development in my first term. Let us focus on the people who already live here first."
Just a reminder.
"Thermal solutions are used in some of the greenest cities and countries around the world," said Donald Blair. "It"s time Toronto stopped thinking of archaic incineration and looked toward green, clean and lean thermal technologies that work, and do not produce harmful dioxins into the air."
