COVID-19 Updates

Vaccine Passports, She-Covery, Childcare in Ontario, and COVID-19 Updates

I hope everyone had a relaxing and enjoyable long weekend. I am grateful to have been able to spend some quality time with my family. I’m so proud that over 70% of eligible Toronto residents are fully vaccinated, but there is still some work to do in getting the city across the finish line. I look forward to the Team Toronto Home Stretch Vaccine Push, and its focus on meeting people where they are: neighbourhoods and communities.

Supporting Small Businesses and COVID-19 Updates

As this long weekend approaches, I hope everyone is making the most of the warm weather and finding opportunities to stay cool. This pandemic has both felt like a lifetime and a blur. As each of us makes a slow return to the activities we’ve enjoyed, I want to gently remind everyone that it’s ok to feel anxious about re-opening. We have each been through a historical and traumatizing event, and are still navigating it.

Safe Return to School, Anti-Asian Racism, and COVID-19 Updates

Today, Ontario is reporting 127 new cases of COVID-19, including 34 in Toronto. The province has entered Step Three of the reopening plan and 60.8% of all eligible Ontarians 12 years and older have been fully vaccinated and 78.9% have had at least one dose. While this is exciting news, the vaccination trend is slowly decreasing. I know that’s because many of you have already been vaccinated, and I am still encouraging everyone who can to get their doses to do so. Everyone is now eligible for expedited second doses, and this continues to be our best strategy to keep everyone safe from further outbreaks. This includes children under 12 who are currently not eligible.

Save Small Businesses

Toronto Centre is the heart of Toronto’s downtown. We are home to some of Canada’s most iconic business districts and small businesses, from Canada’s largest gay village to the Financial District, to the re-invigorated historical districts such as Yonge Street, Corktown, St Lawrence Market and more. We also know that businesses across our community are in trouble.

To save small businesses, the Provincial and Federal governments need to step up and legislate a moratorium on commercial rental evictions and restructure the CERCA to allow tenants to directly access the 50 percent government relief if their landlords indicate they will not apply. The Government should also look at expanding the amount of money made eligible through Canada Emergency Business Account (CEBA). In urban centers with high rental and operating costs, for many business owners, the $40,000 is already gone. 

Please add your name and call on the Provincial and Federal governments to make the necessary legislative changes we need to save our small businesses and our main streets.
