I love Toronto. The neighbourhoods, the communities, the people. I love grabbing a chai latte at a local cafe that already knows my order. Being able to bike to and from work. Calling St. Lawrence Market my local market. Everything is right here. The new Ward 21 includes Corktown, the Distillery District, St. Lawrence, Moss Park, the Canary District and more.
As our city grows, and it is growing quickly, we need to make sure it continues to work. Too often three full streetcars pass by a group of us, or a bus doesn’t show up at all. With the cost of housing, too many people are being priced out of the downtown core. While there are exciting new developments along the Waterfront, we need to ensure it’s green, open and accessible.
In my work as a broadcast journalist I’ve had the great opportunity to cover stories on people and ideas that shape our city. Working at Twitter Canada, I’ve seen how technology can build community and create change around issues that matter most. This election is an opportunity to connect with our neighbours and work together to ensure we’re building a city that makes us proud.
