WBCA November 2018 Newsletter

Winter is coming!

Hello West Benders,

Our next meeting is this coming Wednesday, November 21st.  We will meet at our usual place and time; 7pm in the second floor staff room at Indian Road Crescent Public School.

We have a few new items of business to discuss.  For starters, we will explore obtaining registered charitable organization status.  This idea was raised at our AGM last month.  It is something that we have considered before, but our situation is different now as we have more assets and resources to manage and to fund.  Obtaining registered status opens up the potential to raise more funds from individuals and perhaps more importantly, to apply for grants we do not currently qualify for without registered status.  We would also be able to leverage registered charity status to assist other local groups that we can partner with and help raise funds for.

The Community Council shuffle has come up once again.  Under the 47 ward system, the West Bend Community Association campaigned to have our neighbourhood assigned to the downtown Toronto Community Council.  Our neighbourhood has much more in common with downtown than with Etobicoke;  think transit, laneways, condos, cyclists, and sidewalks!   Our campaign was successful!  However, under the current 25 ward system, there is once again consideration to to have our Ward 4 grouped with the wards to our West.  We will campaign again to be a part of a Community Council that better understands our community’s needs, and we can use your help!

And now for a little public service announcement:  Winter is coming!  Please be sure to shovel your sidewalks within 24 hours of a snowfall (ideally sooner!).  We live in an incredibly walkable neighbourhood — please be considerate those who rely on our sidewalks to get around!

West Bend Community Association October 2018 Newsletter

Two elections in one week!

Hello West Bend Community,

This Tuesday, the local community associations in Ward 4 are sponsoring an all-candidates meeting to give residents an opportunity to meet the individuals seeking your vote to be City Councillor.  The event team has worked hard to ensure it will be an interesting event for all, where attendees can form a solid and informed opinion on who should represent them at City Hall.  You are highly encouraged to attend!  If there are questions on specific issues that you would like to see asked of the candidates, please respond with them to this newsletter.

On Wednesday, October 17th we will hold our Annual General Meeting.  The meeting is open to everyone!  We will be accepting new members and welcoming returning members to vote on our executive team and goals for the upcoming year.

Topics for discussion will include:

  • Municipal election on October 22
  • Traffic calming in the West Bend
  • Adopt a section of the Railside Garden
  • Multiple high-rise development proposals
  • A donation to the Junction Historical Society

With a smaller city council and significantly more residents represented by each Councillor, Community Associations take on even greater importance.  The West Bend Community Association represents the interests of our local community and has had a very noticeable and positive impact. 

We helped prevent Metrolinx from building a 5m solid concrete wall shadowing our Railside Garden — a garden which we now have funds to build and maintain.  We stopped an oversized 30 storey building from being constructed on the tiny plot at Bloor & Dundas, we oversaw the revitalization of many local parks, and we continue to insist that the many new real-estate developments in the area make as positive a contribution to the community as possible.

Your Community Association is a great place to sound out neighbourhood concerns and find others that share them with you.  We work together to ensure the West Bend remains among the best places in Toronto to live, work and visit.  We exist because of and for our local community.  If you would like to get more involved in the neighbourhood, want to get to know more of your neighbours, or are just curious; please come out and join us on Wednesday.

We look forward to seeing you for the beginning of an exciting year in the West Bend!

 

In this Newsletter:

  • Meet your Candidates for City Council on Tuesday
  • WBCA Annual General Meeting on Wednesday

Are you ready for the upcoming Municipal election?

View this email in your browser

Election time is here!

Barring any further surprises, we will head to the polls in just over a month to set the direction for our City for the next four years.  This election campaign has been one of the most chaotic ever – but please don’t let that turn you away from participating.  If anything, now more than ever, this is our opportunity to show that we DO care about the governance and the fate of our City of Toronto.

Confused by all the talk of changing wards?
Not sure who you will even have the opportunity to vote for?
You are not alone!

On Monday, October 22nd, you will have an opportunity to make your selection for the Mayor of Toronto, your local representative on City Council, and your School Board Trustee.  Do not forget about your School Board Trustees.  Combined, Toronto’s school boards manage over 4 billion dollars of our taxed money!

One of the traditional roles of a Community Association is to provide residents opportunities to meet their candidates, to get to know their platforms, and facilitate an informed decision on who to vote for.

Our ward now stretches from Dufferin Road to the Humber River, between Lake Ontario and the railway tracks (Railpath & the tracks north of Dundas).  We will share a City Councillor and School Board Trustees with neighbourhoods including Parkdale, Roncesvalles, High Park, The Junction, Swansea, and Baby Point.  Several of these neighbourhoods will be hosting all candidates meetings during the month of October, and we will share the dates and locations with you as soon as possible.
 

Who might be willing to help us host an all candidates meeting here in the West Bend?

Most importantly, we will need people to attend!  We need as many people as possible from the community to participate.  Please let us know what would make you consider attending such an event.  Are you tired of ‘debates’ consisting only of rehearsed sound bites?  Do you find it impractical to attend a weekday evening session?  Reply to this email with your feedback and suggestions on what you would like the event to be!  What can the West Bend Community Association do to help you and your neighbours make a confident and informed vote?

If we do host a meeting, we will need people to help promote the event, assist as ushers, and act as time keepers, organizers, and more.  Are you interested in lending your time and skills to this important democratic cause?  No ‘experience’ is necessary — if you want to take part, then we want you!  Students – this will be far more hands-on than civics class and you can even collect some volunteer hours!

We must act fast!

There are at least 5 candidates seeking to represent us on City Council and approximately three dozen candidates for mayor!  The list will be finalized by end of day tomorrow.  We need to make a decision on whether or not to host a meeting and what it should look like within the next week.  Please respond to this email to let us know of your interest in attending or helping host a democracy strengthening event.  Feedback and suggestions on how to run the event are most welcome.  I personally don’t want to see ‘just another sound-bite fest’, and so I am appealing to all of you for ideas on how to make it better.  I promise to respond to every one of you who writes me back!

I have some thoughts;  How about a gathering on a Saturday?  Maybe we could run the event as a social instead of as a lecture?  Let’s invite the candidates for School Board Trustee too, as there so few forums to hear from them.

Your vote is just the beginning!

Through the WBCA, we can hold our representatives accountable and promote a well run and healthy City between elections too!

Whether or not we have sufficient interest to host an all candidates event, the WBCA will do what we can to provide you with information you need to know about the people that seek to represent us.  We have compiled a list of issues important to the neighbourhood: aggressive traffic, (excessive?) high-rise developments, a lack of neighbourhood character preservation, and community services that do not seem able to keep up with our growing population.  We will be seeking formal responses from our candidates on these issues and will make all efforts to get this information to you so that on October 22nd, you can have your say!
