Councillor Josh Matlow

Empower Toronto

Please join me for an important and timely conversation about the future of our city. As the Doug Ford Government continues to unilaterally make impactful decisions that affect our quality of life, I believe it’s time to focus on realistic ways to empower Toronto. Currently, the City of Toronto is a mere creature of the province under the constitution. We have 19thcentury rules that no longer meet the needs of our 21st century city. Join me for a panel conversation with John Sewell – former Mayor of Toronto, Cherise Burda – Executive Director of the Ryerson City Building Institute and Nathalie Des Rosiers – MPP and constitutional law expert, moderated by Steve Paikin.

Please RSVP by emailing



NOTE: I am currently reading through the long list of changes the Province is making to the City’s planning process and to the council approved local secondary plans, including Midtown in Focus. I will have a detailed analysis prepared to send to you in the coming days. Meanwhile, please see this news article for initial information.
