July 20, 2016 – Invasion of Cyprus – Eισβολή της Κύπρου

Today, I commemorate with you the tragic events and enduring consequences of the Turkish invasion of Cyprus on July 20 1974, that continues to this day. 

I extend my deepest sympathies to the families and friends of those who lost their lives during the summer of 1974 and hope that the pursuit of justice will help to honour their memories.

City council is moving ahead with the Scarborough subway — again.

After a day-long debate, councillors voted to build the $2.9 billion one-stop subway extension to the Scarborough Town Centre. They also rejected a 7-stop light-rail line for the second time, killing a proposal that anti-subway councillors said made fiscal sense.

Hi Jim,

Congratulations on gaining some ground with the Sheppard line during a very difficult debate. We are all hoping it will turn the tide once and for all against the planned LRT on Sheppard.  I hope we live long enough to see it happen!

CONGRATULATIONS on having your motion passed for at least a study of considering the Sheppard Subway east of Don Mills and then looping into the Danforth line….Of course, I may never live to see this as a reality, but it still feels good to see that the idea is receiving its due.

Good for you, Jim…..J
