  1. anyone running that says affordable housing is a liar big time. at $100. per sheet of plywood there an be no way any build would be affordable.
    With planning fees from the city at $250.000. per home again what is affordable ??? I blame all of the councilors that are there not and of course mayor

  2. To: John Tory:
    How will increasing the housing supply alleviate rental costs?
    Why doesn’t your campaign address the shortage of affordable housing?
    Why have you supported the Province in their unstoppable concentration of building condos which offer very small units at unaffordable cost?
    Why do you support Doug Ford in his alliances with his billionaire buddies now in the legislature who are increasing population density and traffic deadlock?
    Why aren’t you investing in ideas and alliances with companies that build more family-friendly, lower-cost housing, that attract a range of ages?
    Why aren’t you supporting the building of more community-based complexes?
    With the province’s blatant lack of interest in Toronto’s aging population as especially shown in the decreased number of affordable seniors’ residences, and the reduction of the services of the LIN that support seniors living at home, aren’t you pressuring the province to work with you to build more housing and services that will help make it possible for more seniors to age in place – at home?
    Give me a good reason to vote for You!!!

    Yours truly,
