Councillor Ainslie's Solid Waste Management Survey

Dear Neighbours,

You know what they say "April showers bring May flowers!".  This Spring seems to be a flashback to the beginning of winter. This past weekend we got a blast of ice and snow. If I didn't look at the calendar…I would have thought it was December. Fingers cross warmer days will be in the forecast soon!  

Last January, 2017 I asked for City staff to address the detrimental cycles of payday loans as the Province was reviewing their regulations, (my motion here.) Since my request the Province released new interim rules, including a mandatory new business licence category for payday loan establishments, a cap on the number of establishments in Toronto, and a requirement establishments must be licensed by the Province prior to applying for a city-issued licence.  During the one year review the City of Toronto has also asked there be a moratorium on any new payday loan storefronts as a means to stop the proliferation of these establishments.   

During this month's Scarborough Community Council meeting I requested a review be done to examine reducing speed limits to 30 km/h on all local roads around schools throughout Scarborough. The request was approved unanimously by my Council colleagues, and staff will report back during the May 2, 2018 Scarborough Community Council meeting.
Under the City's current system it is left to City Councillors and residents to circulate petitions to see about lowering the speed limit on a specific street. The system is antiquated. We need a clear consistent message to all motorists across Scarborough to ensure all our schools are provided with the same attention and safety measure. View agenda item here.

The results for the Slow Down Toronto, Campaign for the period of March 19, 2018, to Sunday, April 1, 2018 and are disappointing.  Over 6,800 provincial offence notices were issued with the top infractions being: Speeding - 4,122, Disobey Stop Sign Offences – 871, Disobey Sign – 737, Distracted Driving – 443, Red light offences – 338 and Unsafe lane changes – 196.

I welcome you to continue contacting me at, Tel: 416-396-7222 or visit my Constituency Office located in the Scarborough Civic Centre, 150 Borough Boulevard 2nd Floor.

All My Best,
