Klappentext

Excerpt from Civic Improvement: Report of Conference of Civic Improvement League of Canada Held in Co-Operation With the Commission of Conservation in the Railway Committee Room, House of Commons, Ottawa, January 20th, 1916

This is the briefest possible summary of the draft Act which will require careful study to master its details. The need for such an Act is apparent; our present method of developing land is discredited; we are creating new Slum conditions in our suburban areas which are as bad as those in old centres, although they are less necessary because they are capable of being controlled by regulation; unhealthy and feverish speculation in land is the result of unbridled license in carrying out its development. Therefore I urge that this conference should consider the desirability of recommending the provincial governments to pass, at the earliest moment, legislation along the lines of the Act framed by the Commission of Conservation.

The housing question requires consideration but it is difficult to deal with it in the form of a general recommendation. The Commission of Conservation is undertaking a special study with a view to making recommendations for new legislation to the provincial governments. My view is that it is desirable to suspend judgment on the housing question until this report is complete, but that the Dominion Council of the League, when formed, should be asked to appoint a special committee to collect statistics and information regarding housing conditions in the different provinces.
