MPP Mitzie Hunter Community Update

  • Community Update

Dear friends,

Next week, Canadians across the country will be observing Remembrance Day. On Wednesday, we honour every Canadian who has served and sacrificed for our country for the freedoms we enjoy. In better times, I would encourage you all to consider attending a Remembrance Day service – but this year, public attendance at ceremonies are discouraged. I

Instead, you can observe Remembrance Day safely by wearing a poppy, pausing for a moment of silence at 11:00 am, or by watching a ceremony online. You can find more ideas and resources at the City of Toronto’s website here. You can also view my Remembrance Day Message by scrolling through this newsletter.

I’d like to thank all of you who tuned into Monday’s Virtual Town Hall with Councillor Ainslie and Mayor John Tory. In case you missed it, you can view a recording of the town hall by scrolling through this newsletter.

Yesterday, the Minister of Finance tabled the 2020-2021 Budget, which builds on the COVID-19 action plan released in March. You can view the budget here. In the coming days, I’ll be reviewing the document closely and debating it in the Legislature to advocate for Scarborough-Guildwood.

Thank you for doing your part to keep our community safe. 

Warm regards,

Mitzie

Pathways to Education Virtual MPP Reception

Earlier this week, Mitzie joined with representatives from Pathways to Education and MPPs from all parties to hear from the organization and students about the work they’re doing to support youth during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Keeping Scarborough-Guildwood Safe

Earlier this month, Mitzie and her colleagues wrote an open letter to the Minister of Children, Community and Social Services regarding support for vulnerable Ontarians during COVID-19, including transparent reporting of COVID-19 data in congregate care settings, and additional funds for OW and ODSP recipients. You can read the letter here.

Below is the response from the Minister, which includes a commitment to report COVID-19 data in congregate care settings.
