Our MP for Parkdale-High Park – Arif Virani is holding a Town Hall meeting with a special focus on climate change and putting a price on carbon pollution. We are facing the most existential crisis of our time with drastic effects from climate change and global warming, as the UN’s recent IPCC report made clear.
We need your help! The Parkdale Resident Association (PRA) is conducting a survey of the City’s proposed development of properties at Queen St. West and Cowan Ave. (Library, Community Centre, Park, 1313 and parking lot). We are asking our PRA neighbours (YOU) for their input to help us together (re)-imagine what is the future potential of this site.
