From the Danforth to the southside film district, East Chinatown, Queen Broadview and the Gerrard India Bazaar, Toronto Danforth is home to many residential and commercial neighbourhoods that teem with activity and energy.
As City Councillor for Ward 30, I’m constantly impressed by the commitment and hard work of people to improve our quality of life and ensure no one is left behind. Our artists, business owners, environmentalists, cyclists, parents, seniors, families and others are actively interested in a wide range of issues that affect both our community and our city.

Open Data is digital data that is made available with the technical and legal characteristics necessary for it to be freely used, reused, and redistributed by anyone, anytime and anywhere.
In January 2018, Council approved the City’s first Open Data Master Plan and Roadmap. A key outcome of the Plan is to deliver the new Open Data Portal which is a data visualization webpage that will make the City’s data more accessible to everyone, no matter their technical background or knowledge.
More information about open data at the City is available at http://www.toronto.ca/open.
LEAF is a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and enhancement of the urban forest. They offer a variety of resources and programs, such as their backyard tree planting program.

Park People is the catalyst for better parks across Toronto. Our parks are not as good as they should be and we know that when residents get involved, parks get better. That’s why we are working with more than 75 park friends groups, city workers and other partners to plant more trees and gardens, fix broken infrastructure and get more people out celebrating their communities through parks.
Learn how you can improve and activate your park! Whether you are starting a new Friends of the Park Group or hoping to improve an existing one, download the free Park Friends Group Guidebook
We are Project Neutral. Transitioning neighbourhoods to carbon neutrality. One neighbourhood at a time.
We recognize this is an ambitious goal. Yet we feel passionately that the most important action that a neighbourhood can take is to start on that journey. With the right leadership, support and tools, we are confident great things will happen: neighbourhoods will come together and take ownership of their carbon footprint, innovative technologies and funding mechanisms will be piloted, and neighbourhood resiliency will grow in the face of one of the most daunting challenges currently facing our planet.
