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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Oriole Park Association (OPA) is sponsoring a garage sale in its neighbourhood on Saturday, September 24th. So if you live in the area bounded by Chaplin Crescent in the south, Yonge Street in the east and Eglinton in the north, this is your chance to turn some of those unused items in your garage into cash. The Association is advertising the event in the Toronto Star and the Village Post and they will post signs in strategic areas to direct interested buyers into the area. For more details and information on how to have your address listed in the Star ad, check out their website at www.orioleparkassociation.com.

Solid Waste Management continues efforts to increase efficiency by maximizing the automated truck collections. The reconfiguring of the collection routes will require a change in residential collection days for some areas.
All households in Ward 22 BETWEEN YONGE AND BAYVIEW will have a change in their pickup. This affects approximately 4,500 homes.
(click on the image for a larger picture - the boundary between "Wednesday 2" and "Thursday 2" is Mt. Pleasant Rd.)
If your new pickup schedule is now "Wednesday 2", you will start the cycle on Wednesday, September 7 with putting out your GARBAGE and Green Bin. You can find the "Wednesday 2" calendar at www.toronto.ca/garbage/single/calendars/wednesday_2.pdf If your new pickup schedule is now "Thursday 2", your date stays the same but your garbage and recycling weeks will switch, with GARBAGE and Green Bin being picked up on Thursday, September 8.

Traffic congestion is a significant problem for Toronto's motorists, public transit users and cyclists. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) recently noted that the Greater Toronto Area suffers from the longest work commute times in North America. This congestion costs the region's economy an estimated $3.3 billion per year while negatively impacting on the quality of life of our residents. The long-term solutions to this problem include building a more accessible, extensive and efficient public transportation system in addition to encouraging car-pooling and cycling.
On Saturday, August 13 and Sunday, August 14, 2011, the Yonge Subway will be closed between Bloor-Yonge Station and Eglinton Station in order to begin installation of a new double cross-over section of track just south of St. Clair Station. When completed, subway trains will be able to be turned back at St. Clair Station. Regular subway service between these stations will resume on the morning of Monday, August 15. Two additional weekend closures will be required to complete this work; tentatively scheduled for September 17-18 and October 29-30.
