I am pleased to report that my motion to strengthen the Toronto’s tree protection by-law passed at Parks and Environment Committee on Monday!

My motions are based on feedback from you and my experience working to save trees in Ward 25.

I am asking that the city better define key terms, such as “healthy condition” and “poor condition,” improve the public notice and consultation process and ensure tree protection is considered as early as possible in the context of development and planning applications.

Please see my full motion below.
