August 2018 – Ward Report

Dear Neighbour:

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

October 10, 2017 – October Ward Report

Dear Constituent:

I oppose the City of Toronto study on Rooming Houses and I am greatly concerned that Ward 39 is included as a

proposed “Pilot Study” area. I have made my opposition to Rooming Houses clear. These houses have negative

effects on our property standards, community safety and the safety of tenants.

I participated in the public consultation process by attending community meetings and giving your feedback to

City staff. We copied the City Rooming House Survey on our website and it received hundreds of responses. My

team knocked on every single door in Ward 39 to ask residents to complete the survey and provide feedback.

Out of the hundreds of responses, 97% of residents in Ward 39 are opposed to Rooming Houses.

I will continue to fight against Rooming Houses and stand up for the wishes of our community. If you would like

to report a Rooming House, please contact my office. Your personal information will be kept anonymous and
