Advocating for Safer Streets  The Vision Zero initiative is based on a principle that there is no acceptable number of road fatalities. While we may never have the ability to control instances of human error on our streets, we do have control over how they are designed and the police can control how they are enforced. From [...]

Let’s Move Forward Now with 24 Stops for Scarborough

2018-07-06T20:58:16+00:00

Council decided this week to move forward with a 17-stop LRT extension of the Eglinton Crosstown from Kennedy Station to the University of Toronto's Scarborough Campus (UTSC). While I strongly endorse this LRT line, the Mayor's continued support of the 1-stop Scarborough subway has left no funding available for this Crosstown extension. Further, the City's [...]

City Must Act to Protect Toronto Tenants from Extreme Heat

2018-07-06T20:55:43+00:00

No solutions were presented to Tenant Issues Committee earlier this year [...]
