Important update on Toronto's school pools

For many years, I've worked closely with parents, students, dedicated residents, parent-led groups such as Let's Make Waves, and friends such as former mayor David Crombie to protect Toronto's school pools from closure.

I am delighted to announce that the City of Toronto and Toronto District School Board have finally reached a 5-year funding agreement.

Our city's school pools are deeply valued by our communities. They support our childrens' education, assist in teaching life-saving skills, contribute to recreational opportunities and our quality of life- for youth to seniors, and everyone in between.

This agreement will come to the City of Toronto's Community Development and Recreation Committee on April 24th and then to Council on May 8th for a decision.

If you would like to make an oral or written deputation to committee, please click here to learn how. To learn more about the agreement, please click here. We have been successful thus far in keeping our school pools open, but its more important than ever that your voice continues to be heard.

Thank you to everyone of you who have been part of this important campaign.

Dear Residents,

I hope this finds you healthy and well. As always, I hope that you find this e-newsletter helpful and informative.

Due to the upcoming municipal election on October 24th, integrity rules state that I am unable to send out community updates after August 1st. Therefore, you will receive my next update later in the fall if I continue to have the honour to serve you. Over the past four years, we have achieved so much together, in every one of our Toronto-St. Paul's neighbourhoods and the many important initiatives we have brought to City Hall to improve our city.
