Ashcroft convent entry/egress

In the next few weeks or months, Ashcroft will likely move ahead with a re-zoning application for the final phase of its convent development near Hilson/Bryon. With that application we as a community will need to deal with the question of how traffic will enter and egress the site. It’s been a topic of discussion for a long time and a question fraught with controversy, and I’m writing to outline how I view it today in response to the growing number of inquiries I've been getting.

Mizrahi (1445-1451 Wellington St W) Construction Information

As many of you are aware, construction has begun at 1445-1451 Wellington St West, the site of the Mizrahi project. We hosted a pre-construction meeting earlier this Fall, but unfortunately at that time some details were still in the process of being determined between Mizrahi and the City. In the weeks that have followed, our office has coordinated meetings between Mizrahi, the City, and the community association and neighbours in order to finalize those details. We are now in a solid position to present the information as a whole.

#BudgetSpeak As We Hear it Report

On Tuesday, November 5, Councillors Leiper, McKenney, King, Fleury, and Menard welcomed a record number of participants for the annual BudgetSpeak event. We rely on this event to get valuable feedback from residents of the urban wards about what their budget priorities are, so the councillors can best advocate on their behalf during the budget process.

As the Councillors for Kitchissippi and Somerset wards we represent the residents who are residing in tents behind Bayview Station.

We continue to be closely involved in securing affordable housing options for those residents who lost their housing to a fire in April and have asked City housing staff to work directly with those residents to get an understanding of their needs.
