A letter from Councillor Gord Perks


I want to begin this new term of Council by thanking you for choosing me to represent you. The thought of representing over one-hundred thousand people is both humbling and daunting, but through working together we will ensure our ward and our city continues to thrive.

The new configuration of large wards will force all of us to find new ways to work and engage in shaping our future. Our city needs to address housing, transit, climate change, disenfranchised youth and so much more. That being said, we are lucky to live in this wonderful city, and I have full confidence in the resilience of Torontonians.

Our work together begins with good communication. I’ll be distributing this electronic update weekly and will continue to post important community news at gordperks.ca. Spending time with you will continue to be a priority for me. I will share updates on office outreach strategies as details are finalized in the weeks ahead.

In the meantime, I will need to rely on you to let me know what’s happening in your neighbourhood. Please always feel welcome to call or send a note with your thoughts and concerns.
Thank you again for your continued support,
