This blog was set up by neighbours concerned about development on this site. There is currently a proposal to build seven four storey units (six semis and one single) that would greatly reduce public views of the lake, is partially on green space and lakeside "hazardous lands" and is totally out of character with the neighbourhood. This would require a huge amendment to Toronto's Official Plan and zoning by-laws.

DIRECTOR OF TITLES REPLIES

Kate Murray, Director of Titles at the Land Registry Office, wants to maintain her office's current hands-off approach to the issues surrounding ownership of this parcel of unregistered waterfront land.  
SLAPP suits don't matter; intimidation of the community doesn't matter; forced public silence doesn't matter; a probable public land grab doesn't matter.
She says the matter will only come to their official attention if the applicant requests it.  
That is, if Mr. Zanini's legal threats and bullying tactics don't work because an enlightened judge eventually throws out his SLAPP suit against the last remaining objector and declares "might does not necessarily make right" and Dunpar has no other choice.
Remember, the objections were made with the hope that there would be a much-needed public hearing at which questions would be answered and provincial policies on unregistered waterfront land examined.
This is a very disappointing response from our provincial government which one assumes is watching out for public interest and supports public engagement.  Maybe not!
