Exciting cycling news - new bike lanes along Douro & Wellington (from King to Niagara) are on track to be installed in 2020. Alongside the new Garrison Crossing & (soon to open) King-Liberty pedestrian/cycling bridges, they will create new cycling connections across the downtown.

Excellent meeting with the Liberty Village BIA today. Together, we’re working to implement streetscape improvements, install new lighting, improve safety, and bring more public transit to this dynamic downtown neighbourhood.

Today, the Infrastructure & Environment Committee is receiving an update on work on long-term flooding solutions for our Toronto Islands. Read my letter asking that we advance the work as soon as possible. In the era of the growing climate crisis, we must.

Conclusion - in my 5 years at City Hall I’ve been through three different announcements of new transit deals. While there are certainly pros, cons, & unanswered questions today, let’s take the time to study the whole proposal before signing-off on yet another new transit plan 5/5

The TBD - the inter-governmental commitment of funding for relief for Line 1 (including the expansion North of the Danforth) is welcome news. It’s desperately needed. However, we still have more questions than answers when it comes to the alignment and the operating model. 4/5

The Bad - the reversal back to a 3-stop Scarborough subway means further transit delays in Scarborough. In 10 years we have gone from a 7-stop LRT, to a 3 stop subway, to a 1 stop subway & 14 stop LRT, to a 1 stop subway, and now back to 3. Meanwhile, nothing has been built. 3/5

The Good - the proposed Doug Ford takeover of Toronto’s subway system was always a terrible idea. Transit is an integrated network of bus, streetcar, and subways. You can’t pull one piece out without hurting the network. Mayor Tory did well to get the Province to back down. 2/5

If there is one thing I’ve learned over a decade of endless transit debates in Toronto it’s that announcing new transit is easy, but actually building new transit is hard. Here are some early thoughts on the latest new transit deal for Toronto announced today. 1/5

Ours is and must be a welcoming city. When people seek to threaten, intimidate and divide us, we will stand up and speak out...always. Proud to join Mayor Tory for lunch today at Soufi’s.

Thankfully 2015 was the last election with the broken first past the post system. People can finally vote for what they believe in. Oh wait...

And not to be a stickler, but the NDP’s best result in Ontario was a majority Government.
