Not to mention that s. 37 is an excellent tool for municipal corruption. Here is how it works:

Suppose that an unpopular municipal Councillor is up against a popular candidate in an upcoming election. He reckons he is about to lose the election. What to do?

So he starts doing a whole bunch of s. 37 deals with developers, on rather favorable terms to them. Then when he is out of office, he becomes a "consultant" to those same developers who pay him lots of lovely money. This may be corrupt, but it is perfectly legal in Ontario today.

I must add that this particular variety of corruption is nothing new. Jesus describes an ancient version of it in Luke 16:1-8.
