The panel will feature Jennifer Keesmaat, the City's Chief Planner; Barbara Gray, General Manager of Transportation Services; and Janie Romoff, General Manager of Parks, Forestry and Recreation. A media availability will follow the panel discussion.

The panel will provide an overview of the proposed policies designed to improve liveability and secure the needed social and physical infrastructure for Toronto's downtown, in the context of the challenges and opportunities that come with intensification.

It is a global centre for business, finance, arts and culture and is consistently ranked one of the world's most livable cities.
