Following up from the last instalment, Jones’ third chapter laid out the report’s objectives and offered up a brief discussion about some possible solutions.
Continuing from yesterday’s introduction, today I offer up the second chapter of Jones’ Final Report and Recommendations. In this chapter, Jones and Research Director Donald Paterson offer up a brief statistical snapshot of the Study area and an analysis of the fifty-six submissions received during the hearings.
In May of 1964, former Metro Toronto planning commissioner Murray Jones was appointed by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs J.W. Spooner to head up a commission of one to study just how the reduce the friction in the relationship between Ottawa, its surrounding municipalities, and the Federal and Provincial governments.1”Will Probe Carleton,” The Globe and Mail, May 29, 1964, 10; “Mayor Hails Ontario Study,” Ottawa Journal, May 29, 1964, 3. The problems had been longstanding, had cropped up in even the most mundane of situations, and were as much a headache to deal with for the Province as they were the municipalities involved.
