Toronto Star references Dr. Aaron Moore’s OMB research

In Planning Power and Politics, part 2 of an in-depth Toronto Star report on the role of the Ontario Municipal Board in shaping growth in the City of Toronto, reporter Jennifer Pagliaro refers to studies completed by IMFG Fellow Dr. Aaron Moore.

Though research of OMB decisions is limited, a comprehensive study of more than 300 Toronto decisions involving significant development between 2000 and 2006 by Aaron Moore, an assistant professor at the University of Winnipeg and a fellow at the University of Toronto’s Institute on Municipal Finance & Governance, found developers are clearly on the winning side more often than any other party, including the city.
