Toronto and Town Planning

City planning in general, and the speaker's own convictions with regard to two or three strong points: that the matter is one of very great urgency at the present moment; that city planning is not essentially or merely a question of beautification or aesthetics, or of luxury so much as it is the absolute interest of the population of a large city. Ways in which a large city different from a small city or municipality. Characteristics of a large city. Words from President Elliott of Harvard University on the chief principle of city planning. The question of how to eradicate the slum. Evils that have been noticed as arising from a neglect of that duty which we have to perform. Sanitation and housing. Attempts to eradicate slum evils and how they are handicapped by the absence of general city planning in each community. The worst results of the want of a plan. Ways in which city planning is essentially a hospital and racial fact, as well as a great industrial fact. Attention paid in Germany to city planning, with examples. Interest in this subject from the cities of England. Legislation on the subject recently introduced in England. The Housing and Town Planning Act. What the cities of America have done. The issue with regard to Canadian cities. Some suggestions from the speaker. Problems that need to be faced; some solutions. Planning for the future. Now as a time of crisis in this matter; consequences of postponement of dealing with the crisis. The future of the city of Toronto.
