Toronto is a vibrant, growing, and prosperous city, but our transportation infrastructure is struggling to keep up. As part of the 5-Year Official Plan Review process, Toronto is currently having an important city-wide conversation about how to plan and invest in improving its transportation and transit infrastructure. Toronto’s roads and transit system have become increasingly congested over the past decades, but across the city, people’s attitudes are now changing about the need for new transportation and transit infrastructure and the need for new funding tools to pay for it. How do we take advantage of this important turning point and harness new investments to create a better transportation system that fundamentally changes the way we move?
The city is hosting an evening panel discussion to discuss these topics further, as part of the "Feeling Congested?" Official Plan Review public consultation campaign.
The panel will be moderated by Matt Galloway, CBC Metro Morning radio host, and will consist of:
Jennifer Keesmaat, Chief Planner, City of Toronto
Larry Beasley*, former Co-Director of Planning, City of Vancouver
Carol Wilding, President & CEO, Toronto Region Board of Trade
John Howe, Vice President, Investment Strategy and Project Evaluation, Metrolinx
Councillor Peter Milczyn, Chair, Planning and Growth Committee
Councillor Michael Thompson, Chair, Economic Development Committee
*Larry Beasley will also give a keynote speech
