Planning faces the predicament that as recommendations become bolder, possibilities for implementation deteriorate. This is imputed to society's transition from a Fordist and modern to a post-Fordist and postmodern era. The context is marked by a fragmentation of values attachment to the existing built environment, and suspicion between social groups. The empirical focus is on Toronto's bold planning proposals.
