Do you support increased cycling infrastructure and safer streets?
As part of their Refer-a-rider program, Cycle Toronto is calling on you to spread the word and campaign for safer streets across Toronto. Join me as I compete against Councillor Mary-Margaret McMahon and Councillor Mike Layton to see who can win the most members. The more members you and I recruit, the higher chance that you and I are entered to win a bike. Should I win, I will ensure that this new bike is put to good use by a member of the Ward 21 community.
Cycle Toronto is a member-supported organization that advocates for a healthy, safe, cycling-friendly city for all. They have been an integral voice within the city, providing great advocacy for a sustainable transportation network. Their campaigns for complete streets, protected bike lanes, bike sharing programs, and many more initiatives show themselves as a group who is dedicated to improving our neighbourhoods.
By joining Cycle Toronto you are acknowledging that Toronto needs to invest in cycling networks, and evidence-based transportation solutions that make cycling a viable option for all Torontonians. Join today to support a growing grassroots community who are dedicated to improving local bike networks within a larger city-wide framework.
Join today and refer other friends, family members and colleagues and not only will you have a chance to win great prizes, but the organization will have a stronger voice and influence to advocate for cyclists at City Hall. All membership levels give you voting rights at Cycle Toronto’s AGM and a member card good for great member benefits including discounts on bikes, accessories and more!

The colourful trees in our neighbourhood are surely a sign that Fall has arrived. I hope that you have had a great Summer, and that you and your families have settled into a work and school routine. As usual, in Ward 21 there continues to be much activity and in the coming weeks, we can look forward to plenty of programs and activities to celebrate the Fall.
At City Hall, things are gearing up in preparation for the release of the Capital and Operating Budget for 2014. I will be advising you in due course as to when I will be hosting a Community Consultation addressing the Budget and how it affects our city and services.
