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

At City Hall, I have been working on the issues of the extension of the Sheppard Subway and the illegal conversion of single family homes into rooming houses.
Canada Day is right around the corner. This year, July 1st will be particularly special because it is the 150th anniversary of our country’s birth. “Canada 150” is promising to be the largest national celebration of Canada on record.
We look forward to Canada Day each year. It is an opportunity to join with family, friends and neighbours to celebrate our great country and reflect on our shared heritage. Canada Day has particular significance to many new Canadians who choose to make this country their home. Our country’s rich diversity is something for all Canadians to celebrate and embrace.

I am writing to you to inform local seniors organizations and other concerned stakeholders about a cut to the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) budget that will have direct impact on seniors’ living in our city. I hope to solicit feedback on this issue to ensure that seniors’ needs and interests are being protected.
I have received multiple reports that household garbage is being dumped in public parks.
The City of Toronto Municipal Code, Chapter 548, Section 3B states that:
In the case of land that is not a highway, no person shall throw, place, dump or deposit or permit or cause to be thrown, placed, dumped or deposited any refuse on any land not including buildings, within the City, including ponds, lakes, rivers and watercourses, without the consent of the owner or occupant of the property Click here for flyer garbage-in-the-park
Recently, the Province of British Columbia imposed extra 15 percent tax on Vancouver residential real estate purchased by foreigners. The Province has also agreed to a request from the City of Vancouver to allow the City to impose a special tax on the owners of vacant property. These measures are being adopted in an attempt to “cool” the Vancouver real estate market and increase supply.
