  • New GO Barrie Line Station Announced for Bloor and Lansdowne, Davenport Diamond Petition Gains 2,000 Signatures, New City Staff Report Release

    As many of you are now aware, I have been working alongside a coalition of 9 different community groups and other elected representatives in advocating for the best possible community outcome from Metrolinx's proposed Davenport Diamond project. On Tuesday it was announced by the Province that a GO Train station at Bloor and Lansdowne on the Barrie GO Line is a part of their new station plans. This is a strong victory for our community and it wouldn't have been...

  • Improving Road Safety on Dovercourt Road

    On June 1, 2016 I hosted a joint community consultation with neighbouring City Councillor Mike Layton (Ward 19, Trinity- Spadina) to discuss a proposal to turn Dovercourt Road between Dundas Street West and Queen Street West into a one way road. This proposal came forward as a result of safety concerns on this narrow but busy section of Dovercourt and a petition to turn it into a one-way road. At the meeting there were some concerns regarding turning Dovercourt into...

  • Davenport Diamond Update

    In late April, Metrolinx hosted a community meeting about the proposed Davenport Diamond Rail Grade Separation project as part of the Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP).

  • Enhancing Public Safety at College and Gladstone

    My office has received numerous communications from residents, pedestrians, cyclists and motorists about the unsafe conditions at the College Street and Gladstone Avenue intersection. In response, I directed City staff to investigate potential solutions to improving safety conditions at this busy intersection. In late April, I held a joint community meeting with staff and residents to explore the potential solutions. Staff proposed adding a traffic light to the intersection as a means of controlling flows in each direction. As part...

  • Bike Lanes on Bloor Pilot Project

    At this month's meeting of City Council, I voted in favour of a pilot project to install separated bike lanes on Bloor Street West between Shaw Street and Avenue Road. This year long pilot project provides an opportunity for City staff to collect the data they need to inform our discussion about cycling routes in our city.  The shape and width of Bloor Street West changes along the 2.6km pilot project stretch. City staff have proposed a mix of painted...

  • Calling for Improved Rail Safety

    I recently joined many of my council colleagues and Mayor Tory in calling on the Federal Government to enhance safety protections for neighbourhoods adjacent to the Canadian Pacific rail corridor which runs across our city, and forms the northern boundary of Ward 18. Between 2009 and 2013, the amount of crude oil being shipped grew from 500 to 140,000 estimated loads, increasing the risk to our communities. Following a 2013 letter sent on behalf of City Council to Transport Canada,...

  • Spring Road Safety Campaign Begins

    The safety of all road users is a priority for the City of Toronto. That's why the City is reminding pedestrians, motorists and cyclists to take extra care, especially as we enter the fall season when daylight hours are reduced. Statistics show that during autumn, there is an increase in collisions involving pedestrians. The City has produced lawn signs that encourage all motorists to drive safely as they travel in our neighbourhoods. To get a lawn sign, please visit my community...

  • Davenport Diamond Update from the Design Review Panel Meeting of April 5, 2016

    The City of Toronto's Design Review Panel met yesterday on April 5, 2016 to discuss the Davenport Diamond Grade Separation Project. This is the first time that this project has been reviewed before the Panel and this initial review was meant to be an information session for the Panel.
