Last week, our community experienced a tragedy with the loss of little Duncan Xu.
I join you in expressing our condolences and prayers to his family and to the Kennedy Public School Community. Losing a child is not an easy thing for the family to go through.
In response to the death of Duncan, we are taking more measures to make sure that our school community is safe. I ask that you please drive safely and obey the traffic laws. Traffic laws were developed to ensure the safety of drivers, passengers and pedestrians. There is no excuse to disobey them. If everyone follows the laws, it will go a long way to ensure that our children can go to and from school safely.

A PARKING REMINDER – Winter is here and the City needs to clear snow when it falls. Cars that are parked on streets during the day and night interfere with snow plow operations. Please do not park your cars on the road so that our roads can be cleared quickly and our streets stay safe.
Happy New Year may 2018 be healthy and prosperous for you and your family.
I have been working to deliver on the promise of a Fundy Bay Skateboard Park and playground enhancements. In December, I hosted a public meeting with City staff and the design consultant where residents were invited to provide feedback on the proposed plans. The consultation phase is now complete.

There are a number of items coming up in City Council next week which have me gravely concerned:
RE: Nanjing Massacre Commemorative Day Event
Dear Community Leader:
I am writing to formally invite you to a very significant event for the Chinese community in the Greater Toronto Area in commemorating the Nanjing Massacre.
I hope this message finds you and your family well.
This has been a busy month in Scarborough-Agincourt, and at City Hall, for a number of issues that directly affect our community. One issue is that of short-term “home-sharing” rentals like those offered by Airbnb and other similar companies.
I hope this message finds you and your family well.
Last Thursday, I hosted a Town Hall Meeting for the new SmartTrack – GO Transit station planned for Finch – Kennedy (which is proposed with no parking lot). City of Toronto and Metrolinx staff attended, listened and answered questions from residents on this station.
City Planning is NOT supportive of a Pick-Up and Drop-Off centre at the station or a Commuter Parking Lot. This is a mistake. My position on a Commuter Parking Lot is clear: Suburban residents north of the 401 must have the ability to drive to the station to take transit downtown. Without a parking lot, commuters will pass on taking transit and this will increase gridlock.
I want to take this opportunity to share information on news and events happening in Scarborough-Agincourt and across the city. Particularly:
- Beverly Glen School Pumpkin Parade
- Steeles/Agincourt featured in Toronto Life’s November Issue
- News: A majority of Torontonians identify themselves as Visible Minorities
- St. Sylvester Separate School visit to City Hall
- Safety Reminders and Warnings
- Birchmount-McNicoll Street Light Installation
- Road Resurfacing, Sidewalk, and Curb Repairs on Ambercroft Boulevard
- L’Amoreaux Park North Planting Plan for Fall 2017
- McNicoll Bus Garage Weekend Work
- Toastmasters Meetings for Public Speaking Development
- Nominations for Women of Distinction Awards
- Neighbourhood Grants Call for Applications
