Tory, in the wrong way
Case in point: Parkside, southbound, close to Lake Shore. A driver going 12 kms over the limit gets hit with a $80 fine. I find this money grabbing by the City repugnant and totally wrong. I happen to know the driver who got hit with this fine and I know the camera got the wrong person. Totally not a dangerous driver. What's the point?

I’m a lifelong Toronto resident committed to a vision of a city that thrives economically and environmentally. I’ve been part of local grassroots initiatives related to green spaces for children, transit improvement and pedestrian safety. I’ve advocated for better street design and at budget hearings. I’ve served political movers and shakers as a waitress and debated them at the Board of Trade.

Our democracy seems to me to just shuffle people around.
oronto is in crises with a series of issues, and our politicians have been providing bandage solutions instead of addressing the underlying cause of the problems. Our politicians are process people, not results people. They waste money on hiring consultants, commissioning reports, organizing summits and in the end, li`ttle gets done.

Hi I’m Anthony Furey and I’m running to be Mayor of Toronto because as a husband and a dad, I want a city where families thrive. I grew up in East York, riding my bike in the Don Valley and taking the subway to school. I always felt safe. It breaks my heart that my children are growing up in a city where parents have to scan the playground for needles and worry about violence in schools and on the TTC. It shouldn’t be this way. Our kids deserve better.

1. Ok here is my ideas. The fastest way to make new money and the biggest money making projects for Toronto. I am going to make a new sports game called Fastball which the city of Toronto will own the team. Plus the name of the team will be called Torontomo which has 15 players on each side and on a point system which is 1 to 5 if you score in the net, and 6 to 9 if you score in the hoop, the further you go back to your own net and score in their net the higher points you get and if you win the game you get 10 points in the winning column. The game is like soccer and volleyball and basketball but with a vertical hoop on top of the bigger net Plus there is no off side in the game you can play anywhere you want except from the start of the game and if you scored a goal. You can use your hands or any part of your body to play the game, but you can not hold on to the ball with your hands like a basketball the ball has to keep moving all the time. To make this game happen I will pay out of my own money to start the game up and not from Toronto taxpayers money. Because the people might think I am taking money from taxpayers which is... My name is John Letonja candidate for mayor here is my proposal that I want to try something new that has not been done before for Toronto when I walk into the mayor office.

As Giorgio Mammoliti, I am committed to fixing the bad decision that the City has made regarding Willowdale Manor Park. We cannot allow our seniors to be hurt, our green space to be destroyed, and our homeless population to be neglected. As Mayor of Toronto, I will take action to address these issues and make our city better for everyone.
Seniors' wellbeing: First and foremost, I will prioritize the wellbeing of our senior citizens who enjoy the parklands at Willowdale Manor. I will work to ensure that their needs are considered in any development plans and that their quality of life is protected.
Green space preservation: Furthermore, I will fight to preserve our green space by opposing the destruction of mature trees at Willowdale Manor. Our environment is precious, and we must take steps to safeguard it for future generations.
