Child Care

There is a serious lack of available affordable child care in our city.  As the father of a toddler about to enter daycare I know the frustration of being on a waiting list since before my son was born.  As councillor I will push for more funding for public and non-profit daycare.

Changing the wards

I filed my nomination to run for council a mere 2 hours before Ford made his first surprise announcement about changing the wards.  I speak elsewhere on the site about the folly of this move, even if one forgets there is a lawsuit in the works, the main problem for Toronto will be getting enough attention from councillors with double the residents to serve.

Below is a video I made the day I filed.  It was bittersweet (and a touch prophetic) finishing it knowing that Ford was ramming through the legislation without a lick of consultation.  However, while the video does focus on the old ward, my words apply to north of the Danforth as well.

I will represent all residents in the ward equally, and will be a strong voice for the community at city hall.
