November 6, 2019 – Statement by Jim Karygiannis

I was advised earlier today by the Clerk of the City of Toronto that, based on the Supplementary Financial Statement filed for the 2018 election, I was no longer a city of Toronto Councillor for Ward 22.


Upon close examination of the Supplementary Financial Statement, it was ascertained that there had been a clerical error in the completing of the paperwork.  I am in contact with my solicitor and auditor in order to correct the error.


I look forward to continuing my work City of Toronto Councillor for Ward 22 and serving the people of Scarborough-Agincourt.


Summary of Winter Maintenance Activities November 5, 2019 2:00 pm

 Can’t rule out a stray lake effect shower, from 407 and parts north this afternoon or evening and perhaps a flurry in those same locations for tonight. Mainly dry conditions are likely for Wednesday morning into the early afternoon. Models are indicating the risk of snow developing Wednesday evening through the overnight into Thursday. Right now snowfall amounts are low confidence due to temperatures and forecast track. However there is at least the risk of this seasons first accumulating snowfall, though road temperatures will remain just above freezing, so any accumulation 1-3cm at most will be on grassy and elevated surfaces.

Health minister throws north Scarborough residents a bone

Health minister throws north Scarborough residents a bone

Opinion Oct 15, 2019 Toronto.com
To the editor:

On Thursday, Oct. 10, the Ontario government threw the Scarborough residents living north of the 401 a bone. The minister of health has shown that the concerns of the people most affected by the scheduled closure of two of the departments at Scarborough Hospital-Grace Division (Birchmount Campus) don’t matter or carry any weight.
