The motion passed tonight with little debate. It included a 'compromise' that will allow limited truck access to the Sterling St. entrance via Forsyth Ave., northbound only, and just until the end of January '08. Mac spin doctors were visibly and audibly displeased with the suggestion that they had been party to the 'compromise', so it will be interesting to see if they abide by the new bylaw or proceed with their threatened law suit. I think it was Russ Powers who pointed out that enforcement will be crucial as the truck drivers just "do whatever they want".

Mac will also be required to file a truck management plan with the city, as well as monitor their truck traffic. Mac is not known for honouring agreements it has entered into willingly, let alone dictats like this. I'm not holding my breath on their compliance. They'll fight this I'm sure.
