  • Bloor-Dufferin TDSB Lands Community Meeting on June 20, 2016

    As many of you are aware, I have been pursuing multiple opportunities to ensure a community hub is created on the Bloor-Dufferin Toronto District School Board (TDSB) lands since it was first put up for sale in 2013. Following a deferral of the sale of the land in April 2015 by the TDSB (the result of a motion by Trustee Stiles), I moved a motion at City Council a year ago today which directed City staff to start developing a...

I worked to help develop a proposal to purchase a portion of the 7.3 acre site but we were rejected by the Toronto Lands Corporation (TLC) acting on behalf of the TDSB. I...

  • Bloor-Dufferin School Lands Update

    UPDATE: In April 2015, the TDSB decided to defer the sale of the land and that it was now interested in receiving a proposal and feasibility plan from the TLC to create a community hub on the site. Following this, I redoubled my efforts to work with our partners and at the June 12, 2015 Toronto City Council Meeting, my motion on this was unanimously passed. City staff and resources will now be mobilized to work with the TDSB, the TLC, and other partners on...
