Professor Taylor Appointed to Toronto City Hall Task Force
Professor Zack Taylor has been appointed to a Task Force on improving deliberation and decision making at Toronto City Hall. Launched by the University of Toronto's School of Public Policy and Governance, the task force will propose reforms that City Council can act on quickly, without any major legislative or regulatory changes, under powers afforded by the City of Toronto Act and other relevant statutes. A final report will be released in April, 2017. Other task force members include former Toronto city managers Joe Pennachetti and Shirley Hoy, and former councillors John Parker and David Soknacki.
