LETTER FROM TORONTO

Google Is Building a City of the Future in Toronto. Would Anyone Want to Live There?

It could be the coolest new neighborhood on the planet—or a peek into the Orwellian metropolis that knows everything you did last night.

TORONTO—Even with a chilly mid-May breeze blowing off Lake Ontario, this city’s western waterfront approaches idyllic. The lake laps up against the boardwalk, people sit in colorful Adirondack chairs and footfalls of pedestrians compete with the cry of gulls. But walk east, and the scene quickly changes. Cut off from gleaming downtown Toronto by the Gardiner Expressway, the city trails off into a dusty landscape of rock-strewn parking lots and heaps of construction materials. Toronto’s eastern waterfront is bleak enough that Guillermo del Toro’s gothic film The Shape of Water used it as a plausible stand-in for Baltimore circa 1962. Says Adam Vaughan, a former journalist who represents this district in Canada’s Parliament, “It’s this weird industrial land that’s just been sitting there—acres and acres of it. And no one’s really known what to do with it.”

That was before Google.

This past October, a coalition of the Toronto, Ontario and Canadian governments contracted with Sidewalk Labs, a sister company of Google, to come up with a $50 million design for a dozen acres on the waterfront’s far eastern end. The idea is to reimagine Toronto’s derelict waterfront as “the world’s first neighborhood built from the internet up,” as Sidewalk describes it. The neighborhood, called Quayside, would leapfrog the usual slow walk of gentrification to build an entire zone, all at once, as a “smart city,” a sensor-enabled, highly wired metropolis that can run itself.

Toronto’s choice of the Google-affiliated firm immediately captured the attention of urban planners and city officials all over the world; magazine stories trumpeted “Google’s Guinea-Pig City” and “A Smarter Smart City.” Still in its early days, the partnership has left people curious but wary. Google? What does a tech company know about running a real live city?

    The FCC and cities: The good, the bad, and the ugly

    (6-15-18)

    EXCERPT:

    A curious contrarian to this view is the current Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which has interpreted its statutory mandate to dramatically reduce its regulatory power cable companies, and wireless companies, while simultaneously asserting new authority to regulate prices and micromanage the activities of local governments.

    A major tactic in the FCC’s effort to regulate cities is through its Broadband Deployment Advisory Committee (BDAC) process. The

    However, even if motivated by the right reasons, the BDAC suffers from significant failures of design and execution. Due to these failures, I expect the BDAC and the FCC will adopt a framework in which industry gets all the benefits with no obligations, and municipalities will be forced to bear all the costs and receive no guaranteed benefits. This kind of process will result in a transfer of wealth from public to private enterprises—and leave American cities and metropolitan areas no better positioned to tap into digital telecommunications to unlock innovation and shared economic prosperity. Here I discuss what the BDAC got right and where it veered way off track

    The Global Cities Initiative, a joint project of Brookings and JPMorgan Chase, is an initiative that aims to help leaders in U.S. metropolitan areas reorient their economies toward greater engagement in world markets.

    • Infrastructure Connectivity: Infrastructure connectivity matters for regional competitiveness because firms rely upon global access, both physically and digitally, to participate in the efficiencies of global value chains. We measure infrastructure connectivity through aviation passenger flows and internet download speeds.

KILL CITIES – by Rothschild and Rockefeller – Gone Main Stream . . .

https://conta.cc/2Gapapv

KILL CITIES – by Rothschild and Rockefeller  – Gone Main Stream . . . Washington Post and beyond . . .

Apparently, the Rothschilds have access to technology that causes the kind of freak weather currently linked to climate change, and use it to drive people out of farms and rural areas into inner cities.

“This a genocide program,” says California conspiracist Deborah Tavares in a YouTube video cited by the Post. “We are being moved now into what they call ‘resilient cities.’ And it’s important to get this word out, start looking it up: Resilient cities. Understand what this is: This is a plan brought in by Rothschild and Rockefeller.”

A New and Great American Hero in DC Stands Tall . . .
Members of Congress know the Rothschild’s control the
weather and are behind resilient cities, but would never
admit it because they feed at the DC Rothschild taxpayer
money trough as the pigs in muck and the liars that they
are. We the People are in Great Danger!

CORRECTED–
Debunking Snoop –
Recently snoop4truth sent out a mass email 
accusing Deborah Tavares of spreading hoaxes. 
Snoop4truth is an anonymous troll.He presents his incorrect positions and
accusations as fact. And of course he
is wrong.One thing for sure he is no legal expert.

His repeated assertion that Rod Class is Judge Dale is not only
laughable it is a redirection technique. As he doesn’t mention
my name or web site, he hopes to decrease the chances that
folks will visit it. Because, if they did they might run across the
interview of former World Bank attorney Karen Hudes on a
Rod Class call whereby she independently confirms information
Judge Dale provides in his book The Great American Adventure.
You can hear 15 minutes of her interview here:
https://anticorruptionsociety.com/2014/06/02/former-world-bank-attorney-exposes-the-banksters-and-the-bar/They might also discover attorney/researcher Melvin Stamper’s book
Fruit from a Poisonous Tree. Stamper also independently confirms
Judge Dale’s information. If snoop4truth had the legal expertise to
challenge either of these legal giants, he would surely not be posting

anonymously.

Snoop4truth is likely a paid disinformation agent. We should ignore
all his anonymous messages . . .where ever they appear.
Perhaps Deborah should feel good about the fact that she is getting
her message out so far and wide that our common enemy now has
to pay people to try and discredit her.
Best,
