"I was watching council that night and although I'm no lawyer, I had a hard time understanding why the province would care if we submitted 5 projects or 6 projects. I doubt they have someone watching Cable 14 to see which projects our council submits."

Don't be naive! The issue isn't the Ministry, the issue is the proponents who will sue if they think they are being jerked around in the process. The point though is: what's another law suit? According to the evidence it could be defended. What is indefensible is the designation of a landmark for affordable housing. Council was either stupid, dumbstruck by poor legal advice, or wishing to accommodate a well connected development group...or maybe all three! In which case the following has to happen: 1. admit stupidity, 2. fire the legal team/individual 3. Submit the same list to the ministry with the Connaught at the bottom of the list rather than the top of the list...
