DeBaeremaeker's folly

As reported in today's Toronto Star, Toronto Councillor Glenn DeBaeremaeker is quoted as complaining about potential development adjacent to the Rouge river reserve:

We have established the largest urban park in North America in the Rouge and developers are surrounding it

opines DeBaeremaeker. If memory serves correctly, this is the same Glenn DeBaeremaeker who voted against a Habitat for Humanity project in Scarborough. He apparently believes that not only should all land be reserved for parks, but that building housing should not even be allowed adjacent to these parks. Perhaps he thinks we should all live on the infield of Pearson Airport, or in boats floating on Lake Ontario.
