October 10, 2017 – October Ward Report
I oppose the City of Toronto study on Rooming Houses and I am greatly concerned that Ward 39 is included as a
proposed “Pilot Study” area. I have made my opposition to Rooming Houses clear. These houses have negative
effects on our property standards, community safety and the safety of tenants.
I participated in the public consultation process by attending community meetings and giving your feedback to
City staff. We copied the City Rooming House Survey on our website and it received hundreds of responses. My
team knocked on every single door in Ward 39 to ask residents to complete the survey and provide feedback.
Out of the hundreds of responses, 97% of residents in Ward 39 are opposed to Rooming Houses.
I will continue to fight against Rooming Houses and stand up for the wishes of our community. If you would like
to report a Rooming House, please contact my office. Your personal information will be kept anonymous and
