  • Gardiner East: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Megacity - Spacing Toronto
    and the six cities and boroughs were never amalgamated it would be a Metropolitan Toronto Council deciding the Gardiner s fate and we d probably still see the same urban suburban divide when it came to the final vote The case for amalgamation I ll come right out and say that the provincial government under Mike Harris made a terrible mistake when it decided without warning to amalgamate Metro and its six lower tier municipalities into a megacity in 1997 Even though I lived in Brampton at the time I opposed Bill 103 when it was introduced and enacted in 1997 But I think amalgamation was a mistake because the process was rushed it was steamrolled over the objections of almost every local politician and engaged citizen and the motivations were politically suspect a left leaning City of Toronto led by an NDP allied mayor was overwhelmed by a more Conservative friendly suburban population with Mel Lastman as the first mayor The first few years were painful as departments and agencies were melded together Mayor Lastman s property tax freezes did not help when the need for city services was growing But what amalgamation did do was provide taxation and service equity across Toronto York the poorest of the six lower tier cities did not even have a full service recreation centre and had a relatively poor parks and library system That all changed and generally for the better The Toronto Public Library which just opened its 100th branch is the the envy of library systems around the world It is the second largest system in North America after New York s and has the highest circulation When its budget was threatened in 2011 in the early days of the Ford administration they had to back off due to an overwhelming public campaign New Scarborough Civic Centre Branch photo by W Poon I would argue that the TPL makes the best case for amalgamation Before each of the six cities had their own library systems and the Toronto Reference Library was a separate entity Library access and budgets were limited in some of the smaller systems especially in York and East York Amalgamation of the library system has created a more equitable system that s the envy of the world It has been expanding and renovating branches all across the city without any cries of regional favouritism While the library system is still mostly a collection of reading materials the TPL has adapted to the digital age providing communal study spaces media labs new computer equipment and 3 D printers and access to vast digital resources through its website including current periodicals The Toronto Public Library is something all Torontonians should be proud of So yes there will often be an urban suburban split on some issues particularly on transportation items I share the frustration after last week s vote We particularly need to elect a better council in 2018 And there always improvements that can be made to make

  • A dizzy history of revolving restaurants in Toronto - Spacing Toronto
    World s Fair and queues were routinely hours long Toronto s first flirtation with a revolving restaurant concept surfaced a few years later in 1966 with North York s plan to reverse engineer a downtown A roughly 300 metre telecommunications tower was conceived as part of a massive Yonge St development proposal that was to include a new city hall apartments hotels and theatres Mayor James Service was particularly enthusiastic about the tower he hoped it would attract TV and radio stations as tenants Murray Chusid the chair of the North York property committee wasn t convinced however In 1968 he worried that the tower would remain pie in the sky If it s pie in the sky then he ll be eating it in the sky in the revolving restaurant on the tower Service said As it happened it would take until 1972 for Toronto to get its first revolving restaurant The principal attraction of the Holiday Inn Downtown on Chestnut St was a 27th floor panoramic lounge called La Ronde It boasted views of City Hall Nathan Phillips Square and the midtown skyline The room could seat 200 and included a stationary cocktail lounge dance and music hall You ll turn on a stunning new perspective of the city as you enjoy the fine food wine and attentive service advertisement copy promised A year later Ottawa based developer Campeau Corp promised the city s second rotating eatery atop the Harbour Castle hotel at the foot of Yonge St When it opened in 1975 the Lighthouse a two storey disc shaped rooftop addition to the roof of the luxury waterfront hotel trumped La Ronde for height and size The dining room was spread over two floors and was accessible by a glass walled elevator that ran on the outside of the south tower A full revolution took roughly an hour The Harbour Castle became a Hilton in 1977 partly due to the fact the 960 room luxury hotel had been steadily losing money since it opened Campeau blamed stiff competition and a drop in convention business for backing out of the hotel they had built just two years earlier Today operating under the Westin brand the Harbour Castle s revolving restaurant level is stationary The Top of Toronto restaurant courtesy of Retrontario com The last active restaurant of its kind in the city is also the newest At 351 metres above the city the 400 seat Top of Toronto restaurant in the main pod of the CN Tower sat the equivalent of 115 storeys above the ground The extreme altitude did little to boost the restaurant s popularity however A scathing review in the Globe and Mail ripped into the bland styling and low quality food The restaurant feels about as space age as a golf club lounge journalist Joanne Kates wrote It feels like a mile high womb It has been designed to be cosy and comfy so that guests would never feel overwhelmed by the sky high
