The City of Toronto is considering having blanket overnight permit parking across almost all neighbourhoods. The move would add an additional 21,000 permitted spaces and generate approximately $1.7 million annually. According to Councillor Gord Perks, "If you want to park your car, anywhere in the City of Toronto, for more than three hours, it should be on a permit parking system." The move is a matter of fairness according to Councillor Gord Perks.
Residents of Beaches-East York and Toronto St. Paul’s will be polled regarding the initiative, but Council does not have to abide by any results.
