How To Give Toronto A Makeover
In his platform, mayor David Miller gave urban design a prominent place. Now one year into his three year mandate, he elaborates on what is wrong with the appearance of the city today and how he wants to improve it. Many of Miller's observations and prescriptions pertain to street furniture, "the current argot for garbage bins and transit shelters to which a higher design aesthetic has been applied." In particular, the mayor asks us to contemplate whether 37 newspaper boxes outside one subway station may be just a little excessive.
