Amenities matter in city intensification

One-time announcements rob City of ability to plan
By Adam Vaughan
The delay of the federal budget has only really delayed bad news for Toronto. Our city has exceptional needs in housing and transit. Ottawa is nowhere to be found on these files, and it appears from questions asked in the House of Commons that there is next to no chance the federal government will deliver needed funding in the budget if and when it is tabled.
