As we move in to Spring, it's important to remember that melting snow can cause the potential for flooding, including on streets where the culverts are blocked by snow or debris, and near waterways including the Etobicoke Creek and the Humber River. Always exercise caution around areas fast-moving waterways!
March has been a busy month here in Etobicoke–Lakeshore. Here's a little of what the government and I have been doing this month:
NEW: Kids 12 and Under Ride GO Transit Free
As of March 9th, children 12 and under can now ride GO Transit trains and buses, as well as the Union-Pearson Express, for free. This is amazing news for families here in Etobicoke. Combined with last Fall's announcement of increased service along the Lakeshore West corridor, it's now easier and more affordable to take the kids out to see all of the wonderful attractions that Toronto has to offer!
Bill 65, Protecting Our Pets Act, passed second reading!
I'm so excited to share the news that my Private Member's Bill, Protecting Our Pets Act, passed second reading unanimously in the Legislature last week. A huge thank you to everyone who came to Queen's Park to watch the debate and support the Bill. The next step is to bring the Bill through the Legislature's Standing Committee on Justice Policy.
