New Restaurant Zoning rules for Toronto - BAD

The new rules forbid restaurants from opening rear patios south of Bloor Street??? Why? if there is space and it does not disturb residents what is the difference between a back patio and a front patio? or a side patio? and what is the difference which side of bloor you are on?

  1. Because it's Toronto. They're probably worried people might enjoy themselves.


    1. Er, so like what happens when it's a PITA for residents AFTER it's built when there's no bylaw? The bylaw preempts that scenario by assuming residents will be "impacted." Like that zone really needs more watering holes... Next?
