Toronto is already one of the greatest cities in the world. Yet the challenges we face require a new approach. Issues such as gun violence, drug addiction, traffic congestion, housing shortages, crumbling infrastructure, and storm damage are all only symptoms of deeper problems. Solutions require a long-term view based on the principles of social, economic and environmental sustainability.
Populism. Partisanship. Us versus them. Never have we been so constrained by the limitations of our points of view. When our fears and feelings dictate our policy decisions, we are left with a zero-sum game of winners and losers leading to anger, resentment, corruption and resignation. What would be possible if those in public office stepped outside the "normal" political framework of right vs. wrong, left vs. right, and us vs. them? What if integrity, honour and cooperation became the new normal of political life?
Of all the levels of government in Canada, municipal government has the greatest ability to improve the quality of our daily lives. Public transit, outdoor parks, trails, bike lanes, vibrant public spaces, museums, mixed-use neighbourhoods, safe sidewalks, community centres, libraries; all of these contribute to the health and quality of our lives. They deserve our creative attention for their preservation and enhancement
