I would like to thank you so much for keeping us all informed during this crisis! We are all less anxious when we know where we can get information and we know where we can inquire about our concerns. Your time & effort to do these newsletters is so appreciated by all who live in your riding!

Hi Hon. Karygiannis,

I just wanted to say thank you for sending all these emails with Covid updates in Toronto.  I’ve cc-ed my father here who will be returning to Toronto shortly and ask that he subscribe to your mailing list as well.

These emails were amongst what I saw to be the first to be circulated and to have such detailed and relevant information.  I subscribe to other federal, provincial and city emails and those came into my inbox several weeks after I had been receiving yours.   Some emails at the onset were just repeating general information we all already followed in the news.

Thank you for doing your job so well.  It is always at dire times that most recognize the value of those who do their job well and I hope you get recognized for that.

Your announcements on property, Hydro and Water payment deferments, has had the desired effect my street with all my neighbours… They can now concentrate on social distancing and self-isolating…

I would also like to shout out to Jim Karygiannis for directing my initial inquiry to the right person.

To that end I have been acting as the street grocery run driver (I am the youngest on the street with a license and Costco membership), collecting needs and shopping on everyone’s behalf when necessary…

Example: I get a one Costco size Paper Towels pack and split it up with my neighbour… Reminding then to use gloves to take it out of the plastic wrap before using it.


We text and Skype each other to see that everyone is okay and arrange to take turns walking around the street (I coordinate behind the scenes)…

You and councillor, keep up the great work… And together we can win this WAR… WORLD WAR III – Us vs (COVID-19/Greedy People/Inconsiderate People)…

I should let you that as a voter of your constituency, I greatly appreciate your

communications on COVID-19.  You are super active during these national

health crisis.  I am sure majority of your constituents share my feelings, though

some may not express in writing.
