October 26, 2017 – E-Newsletter

Dear Constituent:

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
  • WaterSource “Not Down The Drain” Campaign
  • Toronto Public Health Free Flu Vaccinations
  • Weekend events with Road Closures in Toronto

If you would like your community event to be included in our next e-newsletter please contact my office. For any questions, I can be reached by phone at 416-392-1374 or by e-mail at jim@karygiannis.net.

Please take a minute and pass this email to your neighbors, family and friends.         Read More…  October 26 2017 E-Newsletter
