The City We Want – The Government We Need: The Report of the Governing Toronto Advisory Panel (City of Toronto, 2005, 50 pp.) (with A. Buller & M. Connell).


Toronto is at a remarkable point in its history. As one of the most prosperous, diverse and inclusive cities in the world, and as a major centre of commerce and culture, it also plays a special role on the national scene. The anticipated powers under a new City of Toronto Act will give Toronto special, unique status in Canada. For the first time, the City will have the power to respond to the changing needs of its residents and to chart its own path for its future. Toronto will have the power to reform its model of democratic government. This report contains our recommendations.
