Community Solidarity Dinner, Upcoming Public Forum and Meet and Greet
Last night, I hosted Mayor John Tory, my fellow colleagues from City Council and members of the community at a Solidarity Dinner to show our support for Chinese-Canadians living and working in Scarborough-Agincourt and the City of Toronto.
Many of our community members are of Chinese origin and have recently faced stigmatization as a result of fear and misunderstanding of the novel coronavirus outbreak. This Dinner was held to encourage Torontonians and Canadians to continue to support Chinese-Canadian businesses and to call for an end to mistreatment of our fellow citizens.
I would like to thank everyone who was in attendance last night for showing solidarity with fellow Torontonians and Canadians during this difficult time.

In the wake of the novel coronavirus outbreak, I understand that community members are concerned and would like more information about the outbreak. The Scarborough Health Network, in collaboration with representatives from all three levels of government, will be hosting a Public Forum today to discuss the impact of the novel coronavirus outbreak, as well as preventative measures that members of the public can take to protect themselves from possible infection. For more information regarding the Public Forum, please see the poster attached with this e-mail.
I would also like to remind you of my upcoming Meet and Greet tomorrow, February 1st, at Bridlewood Mall and at Agincourt Mall. Details are as follows:
Bridlewood Mall, 2900 Warden Avenue (Upper Level) – 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Agincourt Mall, 3850 Sheppard Avenue East (Front Entrance) – 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Please take a moment to pass this message along to your family members, friends and neighbours.
