Lawsuit Update

The rebuild of Bloor St. in Yorkville is in the mainstream news today with some of the merchants of Bloor seeking a judicial review of the project in Divisional Court by lawyer Clayton Ruby. One major point of contention is the lack of an EA, the same point that has been raised with the ECO office by Takethetooker and Bells on Bloor in late July, and vexed about earlier by Hamish. There’s a compilation of the coverage on Spacing .

  • While Barber’s column is brutal, and brutally funny, its effect is negate the complaint about the lack of an EA, which is wrong.
  • The SUN article has some excellent quotes by Mr. Ruby on the lack of planning and “EA-vasion.”
