The Toronto Board of Trade’s 2010 prosperity report card underlines the costs of automobile commuting in Toronto. TO comes dead last in TBOT’s global survey of 19 cities on commuting time, with Torontonians stuck in traffic an average of 80 minutes versus world-leader Barcelona at a relatively brisk 48 minutes. One key reason for the long commute is that low and moderate-income households have to travel a long way to find truly affordable homes. One practical solution is an inclusionary housing plan for Toronto. Hundreds of US cities have been effectively using inclusionary housing mechanisms for many years – generating lots of new homes. An inclusionary housing plan for Toronto would help build healthy, inclusive neighbourhoods and reduce traffic grid-lock.
