perfect summary of the real problem: horrible, lousy, un-walkable development that wastes tons of valuable land for acres of parking instead of generating much needed tax revenue to offset the massive public outlay of roads/infrastructure to make the development possible.

If the city is going to shell out hundreds of millions on roads to 'open up' the lands for these builders, we need strict guidelines as to what is built. A good place to start is the first ever master-planned community in Canada: Westdale Village.
Start developing properly, and balanced like that again, and watch how many more millions in tax revenue the city reaps when acres of parking aren't needed.
