Sarah Thomson will work to create a day once a year where streets along a route that covers all areas of Toronto are closed to traffic.
Sarah Thomson will promote “play streets” or “living streets” in every community, where pedestrians and cyclists have a legal priority over automobiles.
Sarah Thomson will work to require all Toronto police officers to have extensive martial arts training.
Sarah Thomson will work to offer free off-peak transit to seniors, students and those on ODSP and welfare.
Sarah Thomson believes that a strong open and effective public sector reinforces conditions in the private sector. The growing gap between rich and poor can and must be addressed with real solutions implemented to stop Toronto from becoming a low-wage economy.
Sarah Thomson is a successful entrepreneur and strong civic leader.
Sarah Thomson has real ideas, and real solutions to the challenges facing Toronto. Her goals are focused on:
1. Building the Downtown Relief Subway Line
2. Free off-peak transit for seniors, students and those on ODSP
3. Investing in local food and urban farms to create economic growth by increasing opportunities for innovators and entrepreneurs, while supporting a strong environmental action plan.
Toronto it’s time to Think BIG . It’s time to go down, underground, with our LRT. Time to build the Yonge Street Relief Line. We have fallen decades behind in transit expansion. It is time for real leadership, real ideas, real solutions and real change.
Protecting our natural sports fields, parks and landscape. Encouraging local urban farming, and working for more, safe, physically separated, bike lanes creates a healthier city.
Extensive Martial Arts training could help our police officers disarm without having to use their guns, while keeping our residents safe. Martial Arts training can teach our police how to react well under extreme stress.
Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC) is the worst landlord in the city. We must get municipal government out of the business, and into the role of overseeing. The key is to empower our charities and non-profits who have real ideas, real solutions and real change.
