I think the word :"granted" in this headline is wrong and misleading. Under the Ontario Heritage Act, HCD status is designated by a municipal government. The LPAT decision actually emasculates the HCD decision made by City Council and not only by reducing its area. Your headline makes it seem like a good thing, it is not!
