Toronto (a.k.a. Accordion City)

Listening to Toronto

One of the planks of Accordion City’s new mayor, David Miller, was that

he would “open up City Hall”. It looks like he’s taking one step

towards fulfilling that promise by means of a series of town hall

seminars called Listening to Toronto.

Unfortunately, I found out about this a little too late — all

seminars, save Toronto East, are booked solid. The easiest session for

me to attend would be the Toronto South one, which would probably be

occupied by other people who live in the core area of the city.

On the other hand, perhaps I should attend the Toronto East one, for the following reasons:

  • To still be able to catch one of these seminars
  • To be able to give the city core perspective to attendees from the burbs
  • To get the burb perspective, especially in a burb where I’m not from (I grew up in and regularly go to the west end burbs)

If you live in the Toronto East area and are interested in

participating in city politics, you might want to attend. It takes

place next Tuesday, January 20 from 6:45 p.m. – 10 p.m. at L’Amoreaux

Community Recreation Centre (2000 McNicoll Ave).

One reply on “Listening to Toronto”

I attended one of the sessions in North York. What happened is pretty much as things are described on the website. We worked on the 3 main questions, only.

What they made very clear is that submissions can be sent by email and they will be integrated into the final report. So, if you can’t make a session, you can still send in your thoughts.
