  • Davenport Diamond February 2016 Update

    Metrolinx has issued Notice of Commencement for the Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP) on the Davenport Diamond Grade Separation.

The first four months of this process is when the proponent (Metrolinx) needs to formally consult stakeholders including the public and document those findings in an Environmental Project Report (EPR).

  • UP Express Fares & Commuter Opportunities

    On February 18, 2016 I sent a letter to Metrolinx President & CEO Bruce McCuaig reiterating many of our community's calls over the years asking for affordable fares and commuter options on the Union Pearson Express. As some of you may have seen in the news, Metrolinx and the Province have listened to our calls and the calls of many others from all across our city by reducing fares on the UP Express and creating opportunities for commuters to use...

As you can see in the photo, the room was...

  • Davenport Diamond December 2015 Update

    Many of you are now aware through my regular e-newsletter and website updates on Metrolinx's proposed Davenport Community Rail Overpass - a 3 story rail bridge being proposed to bypass the Davenport Diamond near Lansdowne Ave and Dupont St. I have been working hard to represent the interests of our community ever since we found about this project back in March 2015 - successfully moving two motions at City Council that got City staff involved in the assessment of this...

  • December 2015 Cycling Update

    I am happy to report that the Argyle Street contra-flow bicycle lanes are now complete from Dovercourt Rd to Gladstone Ave. This lane connects to the Florence street bike lane, as part the City's strategy to better connect Toronto's west end. Parking signage will be updated as parking will no longer seasonally alternate from side to side. The Annette-Dupont-Dundas intersection just to the west of Ward 18 has also been painted to better reflect where the bike lane is for both...

    The City of Toronto is gearing up to deal with the impacts of winter – both on city streets and beneath them. The work includes managing snow and ice on city streets, and responding to the effects of cold weather on the City's watermains and water service pipes. Cold weather and rapid swings between thaw and freezing temperatures can cause an increase in watermain breaks. Toronto Water staff are ready to respond to service calls 24 hours a day, seven...

    The City of Toronto will be removing abandoned bicycles from city streets during the week of November 16 to 20 in advance of the winter season. Residents can assist with this cleanup by calling 311 to report any bike that appears abandoned in the public right-of-way. To help the City identify the abandoned bikes correctly, callers are asked to identify the bike with as much information as possible, including the colour of the bike frame, the type of bike and...

  • Davenport Diamond Report at Today's Planning and Growth Management Committee

    Dear Neighbour, As you will recall, Metrolinx communicated to the community on Thursday November 12, 2015 their decision to move forward with the Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP) for the Davenport Community Rail Overpass in January 2016. This was contrary to the information that I received from the City's Chief Planner regarding Metrolinx's agreement to pause the TPAP Notice of Commencement until Spring 2016. City Planning has prepared an urgent report that was just submitted to today's Planning and Growth...
