My heart goes out to the families and loved ones of the nine people killed and 16 injured in today’s cowardly and incomprehensible attack in Toronto. Please read my updated statement here.

St George Street in Toronto is one of the first and best examples in our city of creating a clear divide between spaces for cars and spaces for people. In 1940 the road was widened for cars. In 1997 it was redesigned for people, for safety, and for public life.

On wide streets, the *quickest* way to implement streets that are safe for cyclists and pedestrians is to add a layer of on-street parking between the roadway and the cycling lane. Now pedestrians are safe from cars. And cyclists are too.

Urbanization pollutes and degrades rivers & Lake with stormwater and - yet no one talks about rights for clean in CITIES. + water as sacred everywhere on Turtle Island

Makes NO sense 2 accept infrastructure/urbanization work causing irreversible $ damage: downstream pollution, degradation of waterways, ecosystem/biodiversity loss. $ Math?! Look @ creative financing design/build cities in a GOOD way. Benefits r NOW + future. Philly stays course

The disappearance of smog days - an intergenerational legacy. Ontario eliminated coal as a source of energy, and it brought our smog days from 53 in 2005 to ZERO in 2017. A hard thing to do but the right thing to do. On behalf of my kids, thank you

Did you know green infrastructure can reduce flooding during extreme storms? Compared to a lawn, a rain garden allows about 30% more water to soak into the ground.
