Best Tamara's copy30

It’s been a busy few months, post-election, with many ups and downs.  I am working on a few endeavours, many of them social justice related.  I’d love to work and collaborate with you on some projects, and to stay in touch.  Check back soon to find out more!

  • A wonderful yet brief discussion on our doorstep. A new voice to enliven the debate at City Hall. I am excited to see what Dyanoosh will bring.

  • Hello Dyanoosh, sorry to be commenting so late, but it was really great to meet you at our front door. I think you are smart and have great perspective. Crossing my fingers that you will make it to City Hall! Good luck! Teresa Roncon

  • I am a resident in ward 16. My voting list is narrowed down to three candidates based on their positions on this issue: Are you in favour of Scarborough subway or LRT? Thank you and good luck.

    • Dear Brian,

      Thank you for your email.

      My position, after much contemplation, is that we need to go back to have an LRT in Scarborough. I say much contemplation, not because I think the area should have had subways in the first place (it should have been an LRT), but because I am cognizant that a) going back and forth on decisions is tiresome and not always a good way to move forward and b) there is a perception that Toronto folks want preferential treatment on many services.

      However, given the density of the area (it is not slated for development) and the cost of a subway, and also given the fact that current work, from what I understand, would work with either LRT or subway, then I would vote to have a 7-stop LRT line there. I would also note that as far as my research has shown, there would be no contract cancellations, so there are no additional costs there.

      Please let me know if you have any questions.

        How fortunate for me that I stumbled upon you on Avenue Rd today, before seeing your email reponse. I thought that your answers to all of my questions were knowledgeable, thoughtful and thorough. With your clear understanding of community needs and issues, I think you would be a perfect fit for councillor of Ward 16. You definitely have my vote and support. I shall be watching the results and and hoping you prevail on Monday.

        Brian B.

  • So sorry to see you will not be our Ward 16 Councillor. You would have brought much needed insight and forward thinking and I hope you continue to be involved and run again. In the meantime, if any of your future community work requires some planning advice, please contact me
