A July 19, 2018 Etobicoke Guardian opinion article is entitled: Long Branch residents ponder lot-splitting proposals they feel are arbitrary:’The culture of decision making is decidedly more coherent and robust in Mississauga than it is in Toronto,’ writes Jaan Pill.”
Comment: The headline might work better as: “Long Branch residents ponder lot-splitting decisions they feel are arbitrary.” A minor detail, however, in the larger scheme of things.
Please note as well, that one of the TLAB decisions, referred to at the above-noted article, has in fact more recently been reversed. That is to say:
Two recent Toronto Local Appeal Body cases have included 38 Thirty Sixth St. (severance refused) and 9 Thirty Eighth St. (in a revised TLAB decision, the severance has also been refused).
