Scarborough Rapid Transit Line Replacement

The Scarborough Rapid Transit line, or Scarborough RT, is a 30 year-old, six-stop line that has reached the end of its effective life span. There is a much debate as to the best way to replace this short but essential route. ...

Lakefront Redevelopment in Toronto

Toronto is fortunate to have prime, beautiful lakefront property within its city limits; this advantage is not being developed to its full potential. Plans for developing the waterfront have been debated since the early ‘70s, yet they remain largely unchanged. ...

Toronto’s Gardiner Expressway

The east section of Toronto’s Gardiner Expressway is in dire need of repair - the chunks of concrete falling from its underside have become symbolic of the city’s infrastructure debt - and yet city council and mayoral candidates are at odds over how to repair or replace it. ...

Pride Toronto

Traffic Congestion and Air Quality

Toronto’s air quality, although improving in recent years, is among our country’s worst. While the manufacturing industry is responsible for much of the smog affecting the health of Torontonians, the love affair our citizenry has with its cars must also shoulder a significant portion of the blame. ...

Our Question: Should the city of Toronto explore road rationing and tolls to decrease congestion and pollution?

Cost Control

The city of Toronto has a spending problem, accumulating more than half a billion dollars of debt in 2013 alone. Some of that money absolutely had to be spent - we welcomed nearly 40,000 people to the city proper (not GTA) in 2012-2013, and property taxes simply don’t match the expense of population growth - but much of it did not. ...

Education Reform in the Digital Age

If our politics is ready for a digital standard then so too should our education. It’s part of PACT’s policy that a national education standard be implemented here in Canada and I believe that this should include a digital education standard constructed in the shadow of those programs being run in other nations. ...

City Income Rebate

Municipalities lack the power to employ the most efficient and progressive of our current taxation options, income tax, and instead rely on property taxes, which are based on property value and therefore both unpredictable and somewhat unfair, to fund their efforts. PACT proposes a new way of splitting the Tax burden among Federal, Provincial and Local levels, the argument being that the current < 9% for the Local level is not enough. ...

Forum: Toronto Mayoral Campaign - Michael@Mayor4.TO

Federal, Provincial and Local political issues are intertwined. Cities and townships need financial support from the Provincial and Federal governments, which currently happens randomly - mayors who are 'connected' get support, others don't. The question is: do you support the idea of PACT participation in Local and Provincial elections? ...

Bill C-26 Tougher Penalties for Child Predators Act

Bill C-26 calls for changes to the Criminal Code with regard to the treatment of convicted child sexual offenders, especially concerning sentencing.

Bill C-22 Energy Safety and Security Act

The Energy Safety and Security Act introduces a series of changes that affect the nuclear and offshore oil and gas industries. Most notably, this Act raises the liability cap, for accidents and spills where no evidence of fault or negligence is found, to $1 billion, up from the $75 million cap that has been in place since 1976. In situations where a company can be proven to be at fault, the liability limit is unlimited. ...

Access to Medical Records

Physicians effectively hold medical records in trust for their patients, who have a right to request the information contained in their files. Some say the medical establishment is generally reluctant to allow patients access to their own records, and that this situation needs to be rectified. ...
