Have Your Say on the City of Toronto Budget 2016 Thursday, January 28, 2016

How do you want your tax dollars spent? What priorities do you want addressed in the City of Toronto 2016 Budget?  How can Toronto meet its challenges through the Budget?

The City’s Budget Committee has embarked on its annual budget process, structuring the financial blueprint for the City. The fiscal plan will be important to residents of Scarborough as it covers city programs and services in our community and throughout Toronto.

I am hosting a Community Budget Consultation Meeting in Ward 39, where you will have an opportunity to talk with City staff about these and other budget issues.

The meeting will be held:

Thursday, January 28, 2016

7:00pm to 9:00pm

St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church Lower Hall

3840 Finch Avenue East

(Between Birchmount Road and Kennedy Road) Scarborough

Karygiannis says Aviva Canada’s plan to insure ride-sharing drivers raises questions

TORONTO – Jim Karygiannis, Councillor for Ward 39, Scarborough-Agincourt, says the announcement by Aviva Canada, to insure ride-sharing drivers, isn’t as ‘cut and dry’ as it seems.

“As of next month, Aviva Canada will offer insurance coverage to certain ride-sharing drivers.” said Mr. Karygiannis. “While the company is addressing the matter of insurance, the initiative is short on details and raises important questions.”

UberX drivers in Toronto, criticized for not having proper insurance coverage for passengers, may soon be able to get some.

Aviva Canada says it will be the first company in the country to sell supplementary insurance to its drivers who ride-share for the money.

January 4, 2016 – Winter Ward Report 2016

Dear Constituents:

My first year at City Hall has been a busy one.

I have communicated with many of you, on numerous occasions, with respect to issues affecting the residents of Ward 39, by having volunteers deliver flyers to your doors thus saving the City of Toronto Postage Fees. Unfortunately, volunteers cannot enter apartment buildings and I have been unable to communicate with Ward 39 residents who live in high-rise buildings, as access to these buildings is limited.
