Hospital Parking
Our brand new Hospital is set to open in October. It is a fantastic asset for our community, however its opening may generate localized parking issues. To get ahead if it, I have been holding multiple meetings to work on changes to help the transition. See here and here.

Cleaning Up Wilson Avenue
With a team of key staff and a representative of the new @WilsonAveBIA, I walked Wilson Avenue to audit outstanding by-law violations. Noted violations result in notices sent to owners/operators and/or fines if compliance is not met. Keeping our streets clean and beautiful is everyone’s responsibility. If you see a violation, contact 3-1-1. Click here for a few pics.

Congrats TO Grandravine Ladies Bocce Winners

Congratulations to Giuliana Carbone, former student of St. Raphael in Downsview
Giuliana Carbone, former student of St. Raphael, is Toronto’s newest Deputy City Manager. This is the second highest public-sector position in the city. I am confident she will do a great job, and she is further proof that Downsview breeds success.

Keep an Eye Out for Gypsy Moth Nests
It is the season that Gypsy Moth Larvae invade trees. You can identify them by the silk nest they create on branches. They are destructive and can spread quickly. The City of Toronto offers many ways to help deal with these pests and others including tree replacement. Click here for more info.

Tips and Tricks to avoid Ticks
There has been a lot of coverage about ticks lately. Ticks can but not always carry Lyme disease which is a debilitating neurological disorder that can be life-changing. The best protection is knowledge and preventative action. Please read here for more info on ticks in Toronto.

Finch Lane Closures
Due to the new transit improvements for the area, Finch will be experiencing lane restrictions until Friday June 26, 2015 Finch Avenue West will be reduced to one lane in each direction between Tangiers Road and Romfield Lane in order to reinstate Finch Avenue West to its permanent alignment. More info here.

Finch West Rail Back on Track
Some of you may have seen the video I created to showcase what Finch Avenue transit riders experience each and every day. In case you missed it, the Province re-confirmed that the Finch Rapid Rail project is back on track. This will create a rapid transit service from Keele/Finch subway station all the way to Humber College, all without reducing any car traffic. The project is set to start next year and be completed by 2021. Read more here.
