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.

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. Many of the participants will be making presentations.
We have included useful information in our second September 2016 Ward Report.

Recently, City of Toronto staff prepared a report which indicated that lower speeds on residential streets will reduce the risk of major injuries to pedestrians and cyclists in the event of a crash.
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.
