May 25, 2017 – June Ward Report

Dear Constituents,

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.

Garbage in the Park

Dear Constituent:

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

Should the City of Toronto levy an extra tax for non-Canadian resident purchases of residential properties?

Dear Constituent:

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.
