Green Light to Moodie for Western LRT

Stage 2 LRT is now going to extend to Moodie Drive, beyond Bayshore Station as part of the original construction of Western LRT. Please read today's exciting update about the LRT extension. 

After much work over the past several years with our City's LRT team, Chair of the Transit Commission Stephen Blais, Chair of the Transportation Committee Keith Egli, and Mayor Jim Watson, we are pleased to report that we are proposing, as part of the stage 2 LRT plan, a further extension west to Moodie Drive opening with the second stage of light rail in 2023, just 6 years from now.

Dear neighbours,

In light of the tragedy in Quebec, I accepted the invitation to speak at the Abraar school and Muslim Association of Canada Youth Centre Masjid during Friday prayers.

December Column

Dear neighbours,

My family is already getting into the holiday spirit and I am guessing many of you are too. Christmas holidays are a great time to make new memories and spend important time with our friends and family. During the holidays, my family and I try to remember those in the community who are less fortunate and may need assistance to make the holidays special for their families.
