Upcoming events in Don Valley West

Hi everyone,

Happy New Year! I hope 2011 is off to a great start for you.

As the Legislature is not sitting, I am able to spend some more time in the riding and am looking forward to meeting with constituents and touching base on local issues over the next few weeks.

The few months following the holidays are always a busy time! I have several local events coming up in the community and I hope you will be able to join me for them.

First, my New Year’s Levee is set for Saturday, January 15th, from 1 to 3 PM. We will be at the Toronto Botanical Garden at 777 Lawrence Ave E (at Leslie). This is my 8th annual levee and it is always a great time to reconnect – come join us and let me know what you’re thinking about all things political. Our federal member, Rob Oliphant, is co-hosting the levee, so you can see us both at the same time.

On February 17th, you are all invited to my All-Politicians’ Town Hall. This is the annual opportunity to hear from and speak to all the government representatives for Don Valley West – provincial, federal, municipal and school board. This year’s town hall will be at the Canadian National Institute for the Blind at 1929 Bayview Ave from 7 to 9 PM.

Also mark your calendars for my annual Opportunities Fair on February 26th (2 to 4 PM) – an event that brings employment resource information directly to Don Valley West residents – and the March Break Skating Party on March 16th (2 to 4 PM). The Opportunities Fair will be at the Dennis Timbrell Resource Centre (29 St. Dennis Dr.) and the skating party is at the Angela James Arena (165 Grenoble Dr.).

Finally, my office is accepting nominations for our annual Volunteer Service Award! If there is someone who you feel makes an outstanding contribution to the community through their volunteer work, please send your nomination to my community office at by February 28th.

The Legislature resumes on February 22nd and I can say it’s going to be a busy period. We face plenty of challenges as we continue to climb out of the economic downturn, but I’m optimistic that the numbers are all moving in the right direction.

I hope to see many of you in the coming months at your events and ours. Please contact me at any time if you have questions or concerns about the work the provincial government is doing on your behalf.

All the very best,

Keep in Mind...
