Dear Neighbours,

I hope everyone is doing their best to stay warm! As we embark on the month of February, we celebrate it annually as Black History Month. Be sure to join myself and your neighbours at one of the many events taking place in Toronto.  The Toronto Public Library has a number of events, our community school West Hill Collegiate is celebrating with a production called "Move to the Music". You may also want to visit one of the events listed on the Black History month event page as well as attend a lecture hosted by the Law Society of Upper Canada - Canadian Association of Black Lawyers on Monday February 12th..  It will feature civil rights activist, broadcaster and businessman, B. Denham Jolly, and Jean Augustine, the first African-Canadian woman to be elected to the House of Commons.

Public transit remains a top priority as I continue to work with residents to have the TTC add bus routes to eastern Scarborough, while at the same time working to ensure the funding for the future extension of the Eglinton East LRT is protected.  A report addressing funding will be on the Executive Committee agenda next month. I have a number of projects ongoing including the request for a bus route along Kingston Road, from the Rouge River to Queen Street. Residents are passionate about this request so much so a grassroots petition has been started to show support.  If you have not added your name to support the route please visit the link to the petition here. See Inside Toronto's article here.

I am very proud to continue to host the Guild Alive with Culture Arts Festival with the Guild Renaissance Group. Entering our 11th year, the Arts Festival has become an immense success, as one of the best Arts Festivals in southern Ontario!  This year the Festival will take place on the July 28 – July 29 weekend. Please visit the Festival page for regular updates on a fun-filled weekend!

The arts community in Scarborough East has increased over the years with a wide variety of offerings.  The Guild Festival Theatre, a registered charity and non-profit organization is one of our jewels that have been performing at the Guild Park and Gardens outdoor Greek Theatre since 2011.  This year the Theatre unfortunately lost their main sponsor, and are in need of financial support. If you would like to help the theatre enabling them to bring live theatre to Scarborough East please click here for more information.  

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,
Paul W. Ainslie
