Ward 13: Toronto Centre
Toronto Centre covers the heart of Downtown Toronto. The ward includes Regent Park, St. James Town, Cabbagetown, Church and Wellesley, Ryerson University, Toronto Eaton Centre, and part of the city's financial district.
In 2018, Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam was elected to represent Ward 13 on Toronto City Council.
#BuildTheGrid: Cycle Toronto's 2018 Municipal Election Campaign
During Toronto's 2018 municipal election campaign, Cycle Toronto surveyed every mayoral and council candidate with three questions to see where each stood on the building of Toronto's 10-Year Cycling Network Plan.
Here is how Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam responded to our three #BuildTheGrid survey questions:
- Do you commit to supporting building protected bike lanes on main streets, including the major corridors identified in The Cycling Network Plan?
1. Yes. Filling in the gaps in Toronto's cycling infrastructure is taking too long and more needs to be done to create a safe and connected network for cyclists. Projects on Bloor, Richmond, and Adelaide have helped, but major downtown north-south connections are needed and will be partly evaluated through the Yonge Street EA process now underway.
- Do you commit to supporting building safe, connected routes in your ward as identified in the 10-Year Cycling Network Plan?
- Do you commit to supporting accelerating the Cycling Network Plan to be built in the next four years?
