This report is one of two complementary background documents produced as part of the 1991 review of the Central Area Official Plan. Part 1 provides a synopsis of the environmental concerns and issues that are relevant within the urban setting of Toronto. The document explains the nature, cause and significance of the environmental concepts, concerns, and issues that are relevant to people in the City of Toronto. Issues and concerns relating to the quality and quantity of land, air and water resources are identified and the global significance of local issues and the local significance of global issues are clarified. The role, scope and extent to which environmental planning has dealt with these issues is discussed, as well as the extent to which the public expectations of appropriate actions have been met, particularly at the City level.

This report presents a review of the domestic and international literature on sustainable transportation, and combines this with the results of interviews on sustainable transportation with key governmental and non-governmental organizations. The first chapter summarizes some of the trends that have led researchers and other commentators to conclude that transportation has become unsustainable. it reviews the most serious impacts of unsustainable trends in transportation, including health impacts and global climate change, and also addresses the relative contribution of different modes to the unsustainability of transportation in Canada. Chapter 2 outlines elements of analysis as well as policy and program development, describing broad tools that have been used or considered in policy development for sustainable transportation. Chapter 3 summarizes specific policy options that have been studied and/or implemented in Canada and internationally, and describes associated jurisdictional and timing issues.
For example, a backgrounder can be a biography of a key individual mentioned
in the news release. Another backgrounder for the same news release could be a
history of the relevant organization. Not all news releases need backgrounders.
