Community Dialogue: A Public Health Approach to Drug Policy

Posted on May 9, 2018

The number of people dying from opioid poisonings in Toronto continue to rise. Preliminary estimates from the Office of the Chief Coroner for Ontario show there were 187 deaths in Toronto from May to July 2017; double for the same period in 2016.

 

Around the world, governments are considering different approaches to drugs. Some countries are decriminalizing drug use and possession while others are legalizing and regulating drugs. Change is happening in Canada too. It will soon be legal for adults to purchase cannabis for personal use. In the midst of the current opioid poisoning crisis, some health officials and others are also calling for a new approach to other drugs.

 

How could we change our approach to drugs? What would a public health approach to drugs look like for Canada?

 

Toronto Public Health wants to hear from you on this important topic for our community.

The Parkdale Community Hub Project- Information Meeting | Wednesday May 16, 2018

Posted on April 30, 2018

Great news for Parkdale Community!

 

Friends,

 

The intersection of Queen Street West and Cowan Avenue is home to an important cluster of City facilities and community services that support the local community.

In 2017, I brought forward a motion, approved by my colleagues, to determine the feasibility of a coordinated City plan for city-owned properties at the Queen/Cowan intersection. The goal being to build the City’s capacity to think and plan in a more coordinated and effective manner.

 

A community hub for Parkdale.

 

There are currently multiple City assets at the Queen Street West/ Cowan Avenue intersection, including Parkdale Public Library, Masaryk-Cowan Recreation Centre, a Toronto Parking Authority lot and a below market rent facility operated by Artscape.  All of the facilities require significant state of good repair investments over the next 1 to 10 years.  There is also pressure for a range of increased programing and services in the area, designated by City Council as a Neighbourhood Improvement Area.

 

Communications with inter-divisional agencies and organizations currently occupying space in the City-owned buildings within the study area blocks has started. It is now time for broader community consultation.

The Parkdale Community Hub Project- Information Meeting

6-8 PM, Wednesday May 16, 2018

Auditorium, Parkdale Library, 1303 Queen St West at Cowan Avenue

At this meeting, City staff will introduce the Parkdale Community Hub project, provide an overview of our work and consultation to-date, present a set of principles to guide any changes to the intersection, and give a brief update on area planning and heritage work. Your comments are important in guiding the next steps in the Parkdale Community Hub project.

 

This work will only succeed with community participation.

 

I am excited to share this information and to ask you to start thinking about what this opportunity means for Parkdale. See you on the 16th.  Gord
