Welcome

Dear residents and friends,

 

I deeply appreciate your support and confidence and I look forward to an ongoing dialogue with you on the many issues, challenges and opportunities we'll face together as a community here in Ward 22, St. Paul's and as a city.

 

I'm advocating for a more thoughtful, creative and responsible new approach for city council. I want council to engage our city's residents with an inspiring plan and make informed decisions that are based on evidence, community consultation and the merits of arguments - rather than ideology or left or right-wing partisanship.

 

My staff and I are here to assist you with any concerns or questions you may have. We're also working every day to improve our local neighbourhoods- along with supporting the many valued services Torontonians rely on every day. You are always welcome to contact me at 416-392-7906 or by email at councillor_matlow@toronto.ca.

 

Sincerely,

 

 

 

Josh

Statement on the proposal for a Toronto casino

Dear residents,

 

Many of you have contacted me about the possibility of a Toronto casino. In recent weeks, I have taken the time to review and study research documents from both Canada and abroad on the economic and social impacts of casinos and problem-gambling. While I recognize the need to find sources of revenue to pay for our city's priorities, I do not believe that the long-term impact on Toronto, its neighbourhoods, its economy and its people are worth the gamble. I would far rather Council give serious consideration to road tolls or other infrastructure-related revenue sources before taking such a desperate act. Therefore I will not be supporting any proposal to place a casino in our city, nor any other proposals that contribute to the adverse social and economic impacts that gambling has.

 

Sincerely,

 

Josh

Expanding transit for Toronto - Let's move forward now.

The following slides were part of a handout that was available our Transit Town Hall. Many of you were unable to obtain a copy due to the large turnout. I hope this information provides some context for the recent public debate about putting LRTs versus subways. I believe this is a false debate, as the preferred choice should always be what makes sense depending on where the line is planned for and what funds are available. In fact, for Scarborough residents, the real choice they've been offered is either Light Rapid Transit in dedicated lanes or the status quo using buses in mixed traffic. The mayor has not provided a subway plan for Sheppard other than saying, "he likes subways". He's failed to explain to taxpayers how he'd pay for them.

My challenge to Mayor Rob Ford

If Mayor Ford can articulate a realistic transit plan to city council and Toronto residents that is fiscally responsible, facts-based and considers all evidence including density and ridership projections, and can provide rapid transit service without delay to Eglinton, Finch and Sheppard Avenue residents, he'll earn my support for it.

   

A mix of new rapid transit lines being built across North America

Please see this map from national transit blog The Transport Politic that shows, after governments have left us decades behind, we're finally making progress building a mix of new rapid transit lines.

It's time to move forward with building transit

February 5, 2012

 

Dear Residents,

 

 

For too many years, the question of how to improve and expand Toronto’s transit system has shamefully been used as a political football. One government sets out a plan, the next scraps it, and then the next commissions yet another report.

 

 

I believe Torontonians are relying on us to move now, and without delay, on a realistic transit plan that will benefit this generation and beyond.
