Another Successful Community Clean-up Day!

On Saturday, April 23rd, 2016, communities across the City took part in a spring clean makeover event and our office organized a clean-up at Milliken Park where students and community champions from Albert Campbell CI and Agincourt CI, Ontario International College, Ontario Institute of Technology, CICS, Rotary Club of North Scarborough, and various cultural groups joined forces to clean and beautiful the park – close to 100 bags of garbage were collected!

We thank the participating volunteers and organizations, and look forward to our next cleanup!

Councillor Lee’s response to the Expert Panel report

In light of the Final Report of the Scarborough/West Durham Panel led by Dr. Barry McLellan, I have submitted a letter to the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, Dr. Eric Hoskins on behalf of Scarborough Community Council, supporting and urging implementations of the recommendations outlined in the Expert Panel report. There is an urgent need to update the healthcare infrastructure in Scarborough and investing to improve services to meet the growing needs. Please find the signed letter here.
