Let’s Clean Toronto Together!
It’s time for Toronto’s annual spring clean-up, known as Let’s Clean Toronto Together!
Why not gather your friends, neighbours, co-workers and classmates to clean up a park, laneway or other space that needs your help.
Spring is a time for renewal and growth. Many residents will be participating in special activities to prepare for the growing season. Meanwhile, residents continue to be involved in projects to help further strengthen our community and make it safer.
My first year at City Hall has been a busy one.
I have communicated with many of you, on numerous occasions, with respect to issues affecting the residents of Ward 39, by having volunteers deliver flyers to your doors thus saving the City of Toronto Postage Fees. Unfortunately, volunteers cannot enter apartment buildings and I have been unable to communicate with Ward 39 residents who live in high-rise buildings, as access to these buildings is limited.
