Advocating for Bikeways Across Toronto to Address Community Transportation Needs
In concert with over 120 community groups around the city, as the Toronto Community Bikeways Coalition (TCBC), we’re calling on the city to implement 100 kilometres of bikeways to mirror the busiest TTC routes. By providing safe, alternative transportation options, these additional bikeways will particularly benefit transit-reliant citizens and essential workers at this vital time.
It was formed in May 2020 by a small group of people who believe Torontonians require safe alternative transportation options, particularly during this unprecedented time as our society grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic. I am proud to be a founding member.
The Earth Day BOOK TALK was launched as a fundraiser for the CEC Educational Foundation in 2016. Authors shared how nature influenced their writing. In 2017 a family eco program was added. WORDS IN THE WOODS in 2018 included a full day of writing workshops, a family program with a children’s author and our annual Book Talk Fundraiser.
Join us at the Mattawa River Writers Festival where we are creating connections with our natural world through literature.
Pandemic Pivot: ZOOM INTO THE WOODS with our new series, In Conversation, launched in 2021!
Butterflyway Project has produced award-winning efforts reimagining our neighbourhoods as flower-filled corridors where wild bees and butterflies can thrive.
Training, inspiration and guidance from the nice folks at the David Suzuki Foundation. I will learn about the joys of butterflies and native wildflower gardening from experts throughout the country and get connected with a community of amazing Rangers from previous years. Then I will begin recruiting friends and neighbours to help make some magic happen, finding creative ways to establish pollinator-friendly habitat throughout my community in 2021!
We love our city, and our book ride has the ability to connect neighbourhoods, readers, and changemakers, resulting in concrete, lasting improvements for Toronto: promoting complete streets, supporting local businesses, and highlighting literacy.
Established in 2014.
My role as Co-captain of Cycle Toronto’s Ward 13 Bike Group from 2014-2018 was to promote cycling in my community. We advocated for better cycling infrastructure, making cycling safer both for the well-being of present cyclists, and to encourage more people to cycle. Toronto’s new ward structure has expanded the boundary and the number of volunteers working together for safer streets.
