Councillor’s Corner

By Jeff Leiper, Kitchissippi Times, February 7, 2019

We’re deep into winter here in Kitchissippi, but that hasn’t slowed things down out in the ward or at City Hall. Read on to find out what’s coming up!

On January 20 I submitted a letter written on behalf of myself and our community associations to the consultation process for Bill 66 – Open for Business, introduced recently to Queen’s Park. We’re concerned that if Bill 66 moves forward it will give politicians in Ontario municipalities a tool to fast-track development applications where major job-creators are proposed. The good news is that Schedule 10, which would have removed important community protections in the planning process, has been dropped from the Bill. We’re happy to see this positive outcome as the result of public consultation.
