Councillor Joe Cressy and I were recently appointed Toronto’s Newcomer Advocates. I am honoured to take on this role and help to make newcomers to Toronto feel welcome and supported.
There are a lot of questions flying around about what Toronto’s role will be as part of the Syrian Refugee Resettlement Program across the country.
For a full list of frequently asked or need to know questions please click here.
Questions include: How many refugees are headed to Toronto? What steps has the City taken? What are the most immediate needs to settle the refugees? etc…
If you have questions that aren’t included here you can contact my office or Councillor Cressy’s office and we will do our best to give you the most up to date information.
My office has received a few requests for information on why chain link fences have been put up on the sides of the Glen Cedar Road pedestrian bridge that crosses over the Cedarvale Ravine.
The update that we received from City Staff last week was that the bridge is currently being surveyed by City engineers to determine whether any structural concerns need to be addressed. The fences are up as a safety precaution and can be expected to be there for several weeks while work is being assessed. The bridge will remain open.
