West End Ward Group letter on New Liberty St.
anthill on Jan 27, 2015

Hi Ward 18, 19 (and 20),

Here's the letter we sent today to the City planning division about "New Liberty" street, which proposes a multi-use-path that vanishes 300m from Strachan Ave.

If the City doesn't commit to connecting New Liberty to Strachan, they'll squander an opportunity to improve access to/from Exhibition GO station and Liberty Village employment areas.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3Or3LL4GHghR2V3MmwyeTBid1k/view?usp=sh...

The City has designed Liberty Village into a car-congested mess.  It's time to start fixing the problem by providing residents, workers, and visitors more effective transportation options.

Please share widely (and with our Ward 13 and 14 colleagues whom I can't post this to). I'm happy to send a (3.5MB) PDF.

Best,

-Antony Hilliard

The meeting will mostly focus on: 1) aligning our work with Cycle Toronto's advocacy plans for the 2015 Bike Plan, 2) BIA relationship building (if Hyedie and Laura would like to speak to this!) and 3) continuing our conversation about which outreach events/activities we should focus on in 2015.

Please join us if you are interested - newcomers always welcome!

The agenda and December meeting notes are attached below. Please get in touch if you have questions about getting involved!

Happy cycling,

Next Ward 18 meeting - Tuesday, Nov. 4 (7 pm)
Liz Sutherland on Nov 2, 2014

Hi everyone!
Ward 18 meets on Tuesday at 7 pm at Caldense Bakery on Symington north of Dupont. We've moved to the first Tuesday of each month as it accommodates more of our regular volunteers. A draft ragenda and October meeting notes are attached.

The focus of this meeting is to plan a few outreach activities for 2015, including streetside/tune-up outreach to all those cyclists in our ward.

Come join us!

I choose Olivia
jamker on Oct 27, 2014

Hey SafeStreetsSeventeen! It's voting day, and I'm off to help Alejandra and Olivia, who are teaming up by splitting volunteers into sub-groups for efficiency as we call on our neighbours for their vote; "get out the vote" (GOTV) is critical.

Obviously, I side with those who vote with their conscience instead of from fear ("strategic" voting is nothing else). If Ford squeaks up the middle--which I doubt-- at least the outcome reflects how badly we need Mr. Meslin's RaBIT. I'll stick my neck out here and predict Tory 38%, Chow 31% and Ford 23%.

Olivia is the cyclists' candidate. It's as simple as that. Shame on CycleTO for not giving her our strongest endorsement!
