DEAF EARS ON COUNCIL BUT THE NEXT PREMIER IS LISTENING: MAMMOLITI

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

May 10, 2018

While many ideas that Councillor Giorgio Mammoliti has been advocating at City Hall have fallen on deaf ears, it seems that the next Premier of Ontario is listening.

Safe injection sites and subways instead of LRT’s to name a few.

Safe Injection Sites

Rather than offer real help to those who suffer from mental health issues and addictions, safe injection sites enable very dangerous and disruptive behaviour. The only real solution to the current opioid and fentanyl crisis is to have the provincial and federal governments step up to the plate and offer real treatment options that do not put communities at risk.

Subways

Residents do not want their roads obstructed with streetcars running down the middle like what we’ve seen with the St. Clair disaster.

We are the fourth biggest city in North America, with a population of 2.8 million, and a region that will balloon to 8.9 million people in less than 20 years. Subways attract development, carry more people, and move without traffic getting in the way.

Councillor Mammoliti’s Response to the Wynne Government’s Announcement to Expand Overdose Prevention Sites

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

December 7, 2017

“Minister Eric Hoskins and the Wynne Government made a thoughtless and reckless announcement earlier today that will jeopardize every community across Ontario.

Expanding overdose prevention sites throughout Toronto and Ontario will only further drug abuse. Drug abuse is not a victimless crime, and it destroys the lives of people with addictions, their families and loved ones.

MAMMOLITI BLASTS TORY’S CONGESTION-CAUSING CAR EXCLUSION ZONE ON KING STREET

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

November 13, 2017

Councillor Mammoliti has come out sharply criticizing John Tory’s congestion-causing car exclusion zone on King Street.

“The King Street Plan, much like the Bloor bike lanes project, is just Tory’s latest salvo in the war on the car,” said Mammoliti. “While Tory claims this is about making King Street a transit priority zone, what it’s really about is making it a car exclusion zone.”
