Ward18 Talks

Ward18_Talks_The_Environment_Poster_May_11_2016.jpegI will be hosting the first Ward18 Talks on May 11 and it will focus on the environment and provide feedback to the City's TransformTO climate action initiative. In order to ensure a successful event, please RSVP below.


I hope to see you there Wednesday May 11 from 6:30pm to 9:00pm at the Dovercourt Boys & Girls Club (180 Westmoreland Ave).

Ward18 Talks are a series of salon style discussions where community members and interested experts can share their innovative ideas and solutions on issues ranging from the environment, to arts and culture, to economic development, to transportation and so many others. These Talks provide a great opportunity to take the pulse of our community and to connect with neighbours on the issues that matter. 

I hope you can join me for a great evening of ideas and discussion.
