Supply and Demand. Why is demand the problem (our city and country growing)? Maybe we need to build more 3 and 4 bedroom housing that can accommodate a family. Maybe we can build that in our cities (instead of just towers) maybe our greenbelt is a brake on sprawl (and not a wall to be jumped over).Of course there will be high-rise buildings in a city the size of Toronto! And as per my handle (Spanish for skyscrapers), I obviously don't mind that there are so many of them here (quality is a different issue). It's all the NIMBYs that are bemoaning the 'Manhattanization' of Toronto while at the same time opposing proposals such as the 4-storey Dale Avenue condo in Rosedale. The alternatives would be to build subdivisions on the greenbelt and more highways to connect them to the city (I suspect they will not like that either) or perhaps let's discuss the elephant in the room, ie. limiting population growth, including immigration.
