Recent Achievements

Some recent achievements include:

  • Supporting the City as a Party in the City’s defense of Official Plan Amendment 231 (OPA231) at a recent Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT).

  • Advancing the need for a robust transportation system to move goods and services in Toronto and the GTA.
  • Maintaining the Block 2 industrial water rate and working to simplify the Sewer Use By-law,
  • Endorsing the need to separate storm water management charges from water supply charges for all properties,
