Paul Bedford, former Chief Planner of Toronto and recently-former member of the Metrolinx Board of Directors, had a few words of wisdom for that board at its February 2012 meeting.
A short version of his thoughts appears in today’s National Post in an interview with Peter Kuitenbrouwer.
The full bullet-point version of Bedford’s notes is available here.
Bedford urges the board to be bold and speak publicly about major issues. We are not going to get public and political buy-in to difficult decisions is we pretend the problems don’t exist. I will return to this topic in another article later today.
