Some Great Idea

Good Neighbourhoods, Crazy Politics and the Invention of Toronto

By (author) Edward Keenan

Since 2010 Toronto's headlines have been consumed by the outrageous personal foibles and government-slashing, anti-urbanist policies of Mayor Rob Ford. But the heated debate at City Hall has obscured a bigger, decade-long narrative of Toronto's ascending as a mature global city. It raises questions: What role does a mayor play in a city's temperament and self-confidence Can a terrible mayor make a city better by forcing its citizens to engage What place is there in our new decentralized, global, open-source world for an autocrat
