Approval of a city by-law restricting Palmerston Boulevard between College and Bloor Streets made recently by the Ontario Railway and Municipal Board, will prevent the erection of a synagogue at Palmerston Boulevard and College Street.

The by-law has been the subject of much controversy between the City Council and Palmerston Boulevard residents for some time past.

Chairman McKeown declared: “The Council have given the matter every consideration and we can see no other way but to approve of the original bylaw. We also reserve the right to approve of an amendment of this by-law at any future date should the city so desire.”

The sustaining of the by-law will have no effect on the present erection of office buildings and stores at Bloor Street and Palmerston Avenue, it was announced.
