On the heels of receiving high marks from the Public Transit Coalition and an “A” grade from the Toronto Environmental Alliance, I was happy to host a meeting this week on one of the biggest issues on all of our agendas: Transit City, and the proposed TTC plan for Sheppard Ave. Many thanks to all who braved the weather to come out for a spirited discussion on what has been the most contentious issue in our ward. Like many of us, if there is a chance to amend the current plan I will continue to advocate for the Sheppard Line to be built underground – it will be better for users, better for roads, and better for our community. For more info on my views on these and other transit priorities, please visit www.bryanheal.com/platform
Looking forward, we’ve got two more big events coming up next week and if you can spare a few hours – I need all the support I can get!
OCT 12: WARD 40 ALL CANDIDATES DEBATE
The Scarborough Civic Action Network (SCAN) is hosting an All-Candidates debate at Glamorgan Jr School (51 Antrim Crescent), this coming Tuesday October 12th from 7pm-9pm. We’re hoping for a strong showing as this is the only debate where the community can come out and ask questions directly to myself and the other candidates together. If you are able to be part of Team Bryan for this debate, please write us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have a question or key issue that you would like us to address – please contact the organizer, Jessica Roher, at email@example.com
