– Doug Ford, on how the results of a new study on kick-starting the Port Lands development are pretty much exactly what he and his brother have been talking about this whole time. The latest proposal calls for more development—and therefore less green space—near the mouth of the Don River, all of which could be jumpstarted in a few years, depending on market conditions and a transit solution. Ford sees this extra dash of development as unequivocal proof that his (widely panned) hotel-and-mega-mall idea was just what the area needed. It’s probably only a matter of time now before he resumes his call for a monorail—or a subway. [Globe and Mail]
