City council has unanimously approved waiving $1.5 million in sports field fees and consulting with sports groups in setting fees for 2013. An official from a Scarborough sports group said the fees are undeserved, especially if paid toward low-quality fields. Toronto is the only municipality in the GTA that doesn’t charge for its sports fields for youth leagues.
