It is interesting to note and it is my understanding that a young planner by the name of Paul Mallard was hired some 30 years ago to begin working on a new urban official plan. He is now Director of Planning East and was the first bureaucrat that we had the misfortune to interact with as his first requirement for us was 150 parking spots. To this day his view of urban planning is devastatingly suburban; supremacy of the motorized carriage and low density housing. It was his narrow interpretation of the 1951 by-law that Justice Casey referred to in her ruling. It is also his advice amongst others that our City Council relies upon to make decisions and pass laws.
