Toronto's Future: Who's Paying? - 7th Annual Toronto City Manager's Address
Toronto City Manager Chris Murray is a former planner who thinks of the future in terms of decades, not years. In his address, Toronto's Future: Who's Paying?, he discussed the "elephant in the room" when it comes to municipal government: what kind of city are we leaving behind for future generations? He considered how intergenerational equity should shape our future, made the point that complex problems cannot be solved by single institutions, and explored why coordinated action is required to move forward.
