As Eid al-Adha begins, I would like to offer warm regards to all Canadians who are observing this religious festival.
One of the most important rights protected by our Constitution is the right to worship. The observance of Eid al-Adha is a time to visit with family and friends, while remembering those who are less fortunate and the importance of religion in one’s life.

Nathan Phillips Square is a place where the people of The Greater Toronto Area, all races, colours and religions gather to celebrate the rich multi-cultural nature of Toronto and Canada.
The Danforth neighbourhood and Toronto, as a whole, has been shaken by the senseless act of gun violence, which resulted in the death of two young women. The Scarborough community is deeply saddened by the loss of these two young women; one of whom had ties to Scarborough-Agincourt.
Guns and gun-related violence have no place in any of our City’s communities. We should never feel unsafe walking around our neighbourhood streets. I have been working with Toronto City Council members to introduce strict measures on gun possession in the City. Please take a look inside this Ward Report to find out how to voice your support for more stringent gun laws in Toronto. Ward Report – August 2018
The transition period between the 47-ward council that Torontonians thought they’d be voting for, and the 25-ward council that Premier Doug Ford is set to impose on the city has some councillors stepping on one another’s toes.
And at least one councillor, Ward 39 (Scarborough Agincourt) Coun. Jim Karygiannis is crying foul over a piece of literature that was apparently dropped by Ward 40 (Scarborough Agincourt) Coun. Norm Kelly in a neighbourhood that currently he is not registered to run in.
The literature, appropriately headlined WHOOPS!, is directed at residents in the Bridlewood neighbourhood that Kelly currently represents, telling them he will be running to represent them after all.
“Things have changed,” wrote Kelly in the letter, headlined Re-Elect Norm Kelly.
What things? It’s complicated.
Currently, candidates are registered to run in wards approved by council for a 47-ward council, which has different ward boundaries than the current 44-ward council.
