TORONTO - (April 14, 2023) I am pleased to hear that Premier Ford and I agree on this proposal–and that the province has been working on this for some time. I look forward to seeing the full details of their announcement next week.

As Mayor, I would approve building 5,000 new homes - including 1,500 affordable homes - on the city-owned land where the Science Centre’s parking lot is, and on the land outside of the ravine. We know this is possible because City staff looked into this years ago.

The Science Centre is a beloved heritage building. I look forward to working with Flemingdon, Thorncliffe, and other surrounding communities to turn this building into a community hub that serves all residents.

We need to be building homes near parks and transit to make life better and more affordable for Torontonians.
