COVID-19 Updates  –  May 29,2020

Motion 10 at May 28th Toronto City Council Meeting

At City Council yesterday, I introduced the following Motion:

“That City Council request Mayor Tory and the City Manager to engage the Federal and Provincial Governments to assist in the City of Toronto with sustainable funding so that the City of Toronto does not need to raise the property taxes beyond the rate of inflation next year”.

Unfortunately, it did not pass.  Eighteen Councillors voted against the Motion.  I want to thank Councillors Ford, Lai, Holyday, Minnan-Wong, Nunziata and Pasternak for their support.

Weekend Funnies

COVID-19 has had an impact on our mental well-being. During this time, we all need to stay positive and one way to do so is to have the occasional laugh. If you would like to send in some (light-hearted and appropriate) jokes to help Ward 22 residents stay positive, please send them to me at jim@karygiannis.net and they will be included in our weekend updates.
