Clear sidewalks are now more critical than ever

Here is an important message from our local councillor Josh Matlow:

"Last winter, City Council called for improved standards for sidewalk snow maintenance due to valid concerns raised by residents that Toronto’s current standards are completely insufficient in the downtown and centre of the city.

It is inequitable that residents in the former cities of North York, Scarborough, Etobicoke, and some of York receive sidewalk snow clearing while the majority of neighbourhoods in Old Toronto, areas of York and East York do not. This is especially concerning given that the levels of pedestrian traffic are much higher in these areas. Residents of our City’s inner suburban areas also frequently walk through downtown and midtown, and rightfully expect safe and accessible sidewalks too.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, walking will be more important than ever to our physical and mental health, especially for seniors and people living with mobility challenges." We are asking you to join in signing a petition to encourage City Council to clear downtown and midtown city sidewalks of ice and snow this winter. Here is the link for the petition: SNOW CLEARING Please do this before NOVEMBER 25 when it comes up for a vote at Council.
