Debate on Muslim group's development plans draws a crowd
Vaughan city council chambers and two overflow rooms were packed last night, for a lively debate about plans for an 'urban village' in the heart of Thornhill Woods, a suburb north of Toronto.
The unusually high turnout -- for what was an otherwise routine public planning meeting -- was spurred by a religious undercurrent.
That's because the development proposal comes from a Muslim community organization that already operates the Jaffari Centre mosque on the 30-acre site in the longtime predominantly Jewish area.
