For the record, while I have not been much of a fan of Cooke's, but he can't be summarily dismissed as a promoter of sprawl. He was after all one of the first cheerleaders for LRT, very much an anti-sprawl initiative. In fact, he was a big proponent of it back in the 80's long before it became fashionable, but our regional council passed on the opportunity to showcase an elevated ART prototype, which I believe is now known as Vancouver's Skytrain.
Last I heard Cooke works for Mattamy homes sourcing prime suburban land for future developments. FYI.
