Trinity-Spadina MPP Rosario Marchese might finally be able to push his pet legislation project through the provincial assembly. The NDPer’s proposal to create a condo review board—a tribunal that would resolve disputes among owners, condo boards, property managers and developers—passed second reading in the house yesterday and will go to a legislative committee for public hearings. Sure, Marchese has been here before—he’s tried (unsuccessfully) on three previous occasions to reform the Condominium Act—but with a minority government running Queen’s Park, he believes this time round his private member’s bill actually has a chance (all previous attempts were quashed by the then-majority Liberal government). More to the point, with more than one million condo owners in Ontario and the province’s largest city in the midst of a condo-building bonanza, the number of condo-owning voters is becoming more and more significant. [Toronto Star]
