October Meetings & Debates

Dear friends

Fall is here and we've got four weeks before the election on October 25th to spread our message and get out the vote!

There are several events being planned for this final month for you to come out and ask questions, show your support, and share your ideas about the kinds of change you want to see in our neighbourhoods and at City Hall. Be sure to add us to your calendar!


From LRTs vs Subways, accessibility, TTC fares, and how to deliver a lengthy construction project that is respectful of its impact on Sheppard area residents and businesses - the transit plan for Sheppard and how it is implemented will be a defining issue for our Ward in the next term of Council. If you are concerned about these issues and want to learn more while helping develop some practical ideas - then join Bryan at his Community Forum on Transit & Sheppard Avenue Construction!

WHEN: Tuesday October 5th, from 6 PM to 8 PM
WHERE: At the Agincourt Public Library, ground floor meeting room (accessible)

Light snacks will be provided.

Sept 10 and the end of nominations

And so marks the end of the 2010 voteTO nomination period!

It's been a heck of a ride getting to this point, and I am thrilled to have had the support and encouragement from so many friends old and new.

It can take a whole heap of work and soul-searching to put one's self on the ballot, and I'd like to take a time out to aknowledge Mr Sy, Councillor Kelly and all candidates across Toronto who are contesting in the races for Mayor, Councillor and Trustee. Congratulations to all, and here's to wishing everyone a final 45 days of good debate and successful canvasses in our quest for a more informed and engaged electorate in 2010.
