Mayoral Candidates Address BIA
To help members make an informed decision, the BIA reached out to mayoral candidates with a summary of challenges facing our neighbourhood. Below are their responses to our question:
Toronto’s economic and cultural prosperity, as well as its standing as a global city, depend heavily on a bustling and lively downtown core. However, the aftermath of the pandemic has resulted in reduced foot traffic, including fewer office workers, visitors, and tourists. The situation is being exacerbated by escalating safety concerns and ongoing challenges related to traffic, transit, and construction. As Canada’s largest city, finding solutions to these issues in Toronto will require the participation of the federal and provincial government, but it is the Mayor of Toronto who should set the tone and direction of those relationships.
As mayor, what specific actions or resources would you put in place to make downtown safe, accessible, and inviting for businesses, workers, local visitors and tourists?
