What protections or legal options does the City have should Metrolinx and the Province of Ontario choose not to collaborate with the City and its partners in the development of the First Parliament site?

Answer from Transit Expansion Office: The City of Toronto has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Province related to Transit-Oriented Community (TOC) projects.  We have agreed to work in partnership to shape Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) proposals, and have been working to clarify a more detailed process regarding how we will work together.  The Province has indicated its desire to work together and to respect City planning objectives, but the option always remains for the Province to act alone.  With recent legislative changes made by the Province, the Province has much broader authority to move ahead without the City's agreement.
