At the last City Council meeting, I introduced a motion calling on the Ontario Government to allow the Toronto District School Board to be able to collect Education Development Charges that are essential to fund the development of schools in Toronto.

I am happy to announce that the motion passed unanimously at council. I’ll continue to work with TDSB trustees and parents in calling on the province to loosen restrictions on the charges.

You can read the full text of my motion here.

The Toronto Star also did a full story (available here) on why the province should act now.
