Does a subdivision agreement between a plaintiff and a party need to be changed to reflect the nature of their relationship?

Ontario, Canada

The following excerpt is from Adefarakan v. Toronto (City), 2000 CanLII 22819 (ON SC):

33 It is the position of the plaintiff respondents that the nature of their contractual relationship is a little like turning the subdivision agreement considered in Brandon v. Brandon inside out as the contractual agreement for which the respondents gave their consideration was ultimately incorporated into a by-law.
