I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.

  1. Why are we doing this on a street by street basis, instead of applying a blanket reduction to all residential streets at once?

    Moreover, why aren’t we heeding the significant research on pedestrian safety and the recommendations of health officials (including Toronto’s medical officer of health), and adopting a limit of 30 km/h? At 30 km/h a pedestrian has a 90% chance of survival when struck by a car. At 45 km/h, the odds are less than 50%.

    The City of Toronto applied a blanket 30 km/h limit to all residential streets in the old City of Toronto and East York last year. The city did not fall apart, and traffic did not grind to a halt. We can do it here too.

  2. How wonderful these speed reductions will be if they are actually taken seriously. I drive constantly on Plains Road where the traffic speed reductions are in use for schools and many, many people constantly ignore these as they do the new lower speed limits on Kings Road. the ideas are good—-the enforcement is practically none existent.
    Hopefully it ultimately will work—

What's your take?
