SAHRA Information – Sep 25, 2018

2018 Municipal Election

The 2018 Municipal Election is scheduled for October 22, 2018.

In many respects, municipal governments are the level of government closest to the people.  Their actions affect us daily be it through the provision of transit, fire and police services; water, sewage and garbage collection; or defining how development proceeds within our city.

SAHRA believes that having a strong councillor voice will be critical for the future of our community.  As a result, we encourage everyone to take the time to learn about the candidates and most importantly, vote on Election Day.


What our Ward 8 (Eglinton-Lawrence) needs in a councillor…

  • A FACILITATOR.  Someone who is responsive to and works with constituents and residents’ associations in matters affecting the Ward.
  • An ADVOCATE.  Someone who understands residents’ issues and priorities and can convincingly present them to City Council.
  • A SPOKESPERSON.  Someone who is recognized across the city and beyond as a credible voice for the constituents of the Ward.
  • A VISIONARY. Someone who considers the complex issues that face our Ward and city, and develops positive solutions.
  • An ACHIEVER.  Someone with initiative who works hard to make positive things happen for the community.

In the coming weeks, as you consider the various candidates, we hope you keep these attributes in mind.
