Why would you want to reduce parking here? The ossington bus is a good NS route but there is a dearth of EW transit. You will still get people with cars living here and parking will just go to further crowding an already at capacity street parking condition. St. Clair is no different. The amount of net new cars looking for street parking in the neighborhood is getting out of control. While it might be nice to think that people will just ditch the car not enough of them do.
Tax them into oblivion. Put that money towards transit expansion. Get rid of all the parking.

Shaw St directly south of there is at like 90% capacity for street parking. I'd argue that we shouldn't remove parking, but rather try and figure out a smarter way to incorporate it.

Overall though, this neighbourhood lacks garages and street parking as it is, so I'd be hard pressed to recommend a major decrease in parking capacity. That is, unless we can somehow guarantee the East/West 26 Dupont bus can increase frequency tremendously with this and all of the other developments in the area. Currently, it's every 15-20 minutes.

We could increase 26 frequency or, hear me out, we install more track and install some stops on the CP tracks just north of Dupont!

You'd have to obtain the North Toronto Subdivision, or at least part of it, from CP. And that's just not going to happen.
