OMB Reform Coming
The province is reviewing the OMB and wants your input. As you know, I have been pushing for Toronto to leave the OMB because of the decisions this unelected body it imposes on our communities. This is a positive step and you should make your voice heard.

Some possible changes may include:
-Allow for more meaningful and affordable public participation
-Give more weight to local and provincial decisions and support alternative ways to settle disputes
-Bring fewer municipal and provincial decisions to the OMB
-Support clearer and more predictable decision making
