The Toronto Star – January 26, 2013

More important for Toronto’s future is its ability to provide reasonably-priced and affordable housing, what Kevin Stolarick, research director of The Martin Prosperity Institute in the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management, calls “worker housing.” He mentions a story Rocco Rossi told when running for mayor. A woman, who lives in a distant northeastern part of Scarborough, works on the housekeeping staff at the Royal York Hotel. She spends hours, mainly on buses, getting from her home to her relatively low-paying job and home again.
