This fall, we are continuing the tradition and hosting a Seniors’ Information Session.
The Seniors’ Information Session is designed to help seniors and their families learn about the benefits and programs offered by the Municipal, Provincial and Federal governments, as well as community organizations. Representatives will be setting up booths where you can obtain information and ask questions about the services they provide; discuss issues of interest to you; and, express your concerns.
I have received many complaints that household garbage is being dumped in our public parks within our communities. The City of Toronto Municipal Code, Chapter 548 (Waste dumping prohibited) states that:
‘No person shall place, dump or deposit or permit to be placed, dumped or deposited any quantity of waste on any land, not including buildings, within
the City, including ponds, lakes and streams, except as required or permitted under Chapter 841, Waste Collection, Commercial Properties, and Chapter 844, Waste Collection, Residential Properties’

Ward Report – Jan 2019
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
