I agree - and the Liberals changed it. Without getting too deep into "ideology," I'm simply saying it's extreme hyperbole to suggest these legislative changes are some massive sea change in affordable housing. They advance it in certain areas, no question, but much of that stands on the shoulders of the Liberals. We could quibble, no doubt, about the efficacy of Inclusionary Zoning, but the Liberals made it legal and this change "focuses" it for better or worse.Many municipalities were slow with Secondary Suites, or in cases like Toronto, flat-out refused to allow things such as coach houses in their zoning.
Both governments have taken actions. But neither in a vacuum.
Personally, I'm cynical about how much all this alleged red-tape-cutting will do anything for prices and the sames goes for the Development Charges and Section 37 changes. All a shell game from the developer's POV, I figure. IZ can work, but it presents challenges too. There's no silver bullet, no matter your ideology. Let's just be reasonable about what Doug Ford's government has accomplished here.
