Quarry Lands Rally

As the signs say: 1960's zoning does not make good planning.

A rally against the idea of 7 highrises full of teensy apartments is happening Sunday at 2:00 pm. If you live anywhere within 10 miles or more of Gerrard & VicPark/Warden you should be there.

UPDATE: Despite cold and threatening weather many hundreds of folk turned out to this well-organized event.

Representatives of all levels of government expressed support for changing the current planned development.

It shouldn't be this hard. The thing was zoned for this sort of density in 1968 when the "vision" (nightmarish, but a vision) was high-density housing overlooking the Scarborough Expressway! There is now no freeway, thank goodness; but nobody got rid of the zoning and so far, nobody seems able to.

For lots more informed information, got to . Join. Participate.
