Just saw this article for the thousands of delegates attending GreenBuild in Toronto next month. Just saying.

This series is going to be about what people can actually see and do in Toronto, but a new vision for the waterfront was presented yesterday that is too important to ignore, and that tells so much about what's going on in Toronto today. Last November Rob Ford was elected Mayor on a platform of "respect for taxpayers" and "stop the gravy train" and "no more backroom deals." (not to mention, "get those streetcars and bikelanes out of my way.") Also elected was his older brother Doug. The two inherited a big printing company from dad, and Doug spent a lot of time running the Chicago office. He liked what he saw there. He didn't like what he saw on the Toronto waterfront, where three levels of government worked for a decade, running an international competition to redesign the former portlands. So yesterday he announced his own "backroom visioning."
