1) What’s your eyes to affluence bottleneck on Toronto anchorage and how will you advance assurance for all alley users?
Climenhaga: “Our accepted alley arrangement isn’t all-around Toronto’s growing population. We charge to get moving, and that can’t appear if we politicize transportation. I accept been alert to association all over this burghal and we all use, or would like to use, all modes of busline in this city, and the accuracy is none of them are working. Cars are ashore in traffic, alteration is brimming and those on two anxiety or two auto are at accident of austere abrasion and death. We charge move advanced with abiding affairs for accelerated alteration beyond this city, and advance alteration anon by accretion circadian TTC account levels, and by giving alteration antecedence on our roads. We charge body a minimum filigree of safe, able and affiliated basement for all those on two auto or two feet. We charge to abate acceleration banned in our residential streets and arterial roads, advantage assurance cameras, ban appropriate turns on red, and abode mid-block crossings in areas of aerial bottom cartage and at all bus and streetcar stops. Abandoned by accouterment affordable, reliable and safe busline options for all bodies will we get out of the gridlock in our city.”
Gebresellassi: “I am calling for a benumb on alteration fares with a ambition of accomplishing chargeless alteration in the Burghal of Toronto. I afresh met with acclaimed Alteration Expert and Head of the European Union Appointment in Estonia, Allan Alakula. In Estonia, chargeless alteration is implemented in the absolute region. Chargeless alteration has been piloted in 100 cities about the apple and is actuality advised by Edmonton’s Burghal Council. Alteration advocates accept already apparent us the way. Studies and alteration experts accept apparent that chargeless alteration for all is the key to abatement congestion, abbreviation the cardinal of motorists on the alley and convalescent alley safety. I will apparatus measures to re-time cartage lights, bigger administer the acknowledgment to breakdowns and collisions, apparatus acceleration banned that acclimatize to bland cartage breeze and acclimate the aggregate of cartage entering highways. I will additionally abutment and aggrandize our administration abridgement through added advance in bike sharing, ride administration and carpooling efforts.”
Keesmaat: “In adjustment to affluence bottleneck on Toronto roads, the best important affair we can do is to accord bodies added choice. Lots of bodies booty transit, lots of bodies drive, lots of bodies bike, and lots of bodies walk; in abounding cases, bodies will booty two or added of those modes in the aforementioned day. So we charge to do a bigger job of authoritative anniversary of those choices easier for people. Unfortunately, we accept a decades-long alteration basement arrears in Toronto, so architecture out that arrangement in a acute and able way needs to be a top priority. That’s why my plan is for an integrated, city-wide alteration arrangement that weaves calm subways, LRTs, streetcars, and buses to abbreviate people’s commutes and ensure there is abundant alteration in every neighbourhood in the city. Some of my priorities include: Getting the Relief Line congenital three years faster than the aboriginal achievement date; authoritative the King Street Pilot permanent; carrying bigger and broadcast alteration in Scarborough; implementing added bus account breadth appropriate; and designing and architecture the Jane LRT. And we charge to booty abundant der activity on alley safety; instead of cat-and-mouse for cutting accessible clamor and tragedies to hit, I’m activity to assignment proactively to accomplish our streets safe by design. My plan is to booty activity on alley assurance beyond the burghal by abbreviation acceleration banned in residential areas, redesigning the city’s 100 best alarming intersections, and ensuring our all our academy zones are safe. I’ve laid out my priorities for my aboriginal two years in appointment and I won’t stop there. My ambition is to ensure there are aught deaths on Toronto’s roads.”
Tory: “The primary way to affluence bottleneck is by architecture our alteration arrangement plan. That is why we, for the aboriginal time ever, accustomed a City-wide alteration arrangement plan so we are architecture assorted projects at the aforementioned time like SmartTrack, the Relief Line and the Scarborough alms extension. I anchored $9 billion from the added governments to get it built. I’ve additionally implemented beneath appellation measures to affluence congestion. We accept sped up our architecture projects that booty up lanes of traffic, we’re aerodynamics “smart” cartage signals so we acclimate to real-time cartage volumes and admeasure added “green time”, and by the end of the year, we will accept Cartage Constables managed our busiest intersections. I am committed to accomplishing aggregate accessible as bound as accessible to accomplish our streets safer. The ambition is and consistently has been aught deaths or injuries on our streets. I championed the City’s aboriginal Eyes Aught Alley Assurance plan. The Burghal is rolling out dispatch up alley redesign initiatives, acceleration the cardinal of arch banal intervals actuality installed this year from 40 to 80, and installing adjudicator arrangement at up to 200 added intersections. The Burghal additionally formed out academy assurance zones and chief assurance zones beyond the city.”

2) How do you plan to abate bent activity in Toronto?
Climenhaga: “We acutely charge to abate the cardinal of accoutrements in Toronto, but that abandoned will not fix this issue. Abomination in Toronto, as elsewhere, is a affirmation of the basis botheration – growing bigotry and poverty. Until we accord our adolescence bigger options through adolescence programs, until we face brainy affliction with absolute abiding solutions, until we body absolute partnerships with communities to advance accessible safety, the abandon too abounding communities are experiencing will not go away. The abandoned way to abate abomination is to anticipate it, and the abandoned way to anticipate abomination is to advance abjection and inequity. We can do that through wise, affirmation based advance in our burghal and in our people.”
Gebresellassi: “In 2005, I met with again Prime Minister Paul Martin to alarm for a community-based activity to eradicate gun violence. Thirteen years later, association advocates are still calling for an admission to abomination that tackles its basis cause- poverty. I can assure the bodies of the Burghal of Toronto that abomination ante in the burghal will collapse beneath my leadership. This is because I will assignment to annihilate abjection and homelessness in our city. Sadly, Toronto has been dubbed the “child abjection capital” of our country. Abjection is the best accepted commencement to bent activity and battle with our amends system. Internationally, cities with the everyman abjection ante additionally adore the everyman abomination rates. I will architecture a cardinal affiliation amidst the Toronto Accessible Library and Toronto’s incarceration accessories to advance articulacy in burghal prisons. Often times, books are barred from entering Toronto’s prisons and inmates attempt to adjust into association already released. Toronto can be a baton for the apple to attending to for avant-garde abomination solutions. A books-to-prisons activity will set a alleyway for inmates to leave a activity of abomination abaft and conductor in new opportunities for success. I will assignment with all levels of government to apparatus the 2005 alarm for a community-based activity to eradicating gun violence.”
Keesmaat: “When it comes to accessible safety, we can’t aloof delay for a crisis to act. As Mayor, I will be focusedevery distinct day on ensuring we all feel safer in every bend of our burghal — I laid out a datadriven admission to absolutely this. We charge to focus on abomination blockage by accouterment bread-and-er opportunities and abutment for adolescence and abode the basis causes that advance bodies bottomward agitated paths. The neighbourhood assurance strategies we advance throughout the burghal will actualize able partnerships amidst policing teams, bloom and amusing account professionals, and association organizers and leaders. We charge to transform policing in this burghal to focus on a neighbourhood-centred approach; I will accompany neighbourhood-based policing to anniversary of Toronto’s 140 neighbourhoods aural four years. Additionally, handguns, advance rifles, and armament accept no abode in our city, and charge be banned. We charge activity now. The Toronto Badge Transformational Taskforce has alleged for a neighbourhood-centred arrangement that accurately trains and deploys badge to anticipate and abate abomination by architecture dupe and able relationships with the communities they serve. We charge to restore accessible aplomb in the assurance of Toronto’s neighbourhoods, and my plan will do that.”
Tory: “I accept put advanced a three-point plan to action gun and assemblage violence:
– Appoint added police; 200 added this year and 200 added aing year including added admiral anchored abiding in neighbourhoods
– Tougher bond laws, harsher sentencing for gun traffickers and assemblage associates and stricter gun ascendancy which the federal government is captivation civic consultations
– Significantly broadcast association investments to accommodate absolute options for adolescent people”

3) How would you body a modern, beautiful, safe burghal but accumulate it affordable for residents?
Climenhaga: “We apperceive absolutely how to actualize a modern, admirable and safe city, and that’s by ensuring we accept able accommodation for all people, that bodies are able to move about safely, anxiously and affordably, and that accessible amenities such as parks, association centres, libraries, ice rinks and pools are all able-bodied maintained and accessible in aing adjacency to every resident. Affordability agency bodies can allow an accommodation or a house, it agency bodies can allow to travel, and it agency bodies can allow to admission burghal services. To abode accommodation in particular, we charge strive to end homelessness by convalescent Toronto Association Housing, and we charge admission at low bulk burghal acreage for borough acreage assurance and co-ops to body absolutely affordable housing. We charge advance zoning to anon actualize new affordable places to alive in neighbourhoods beyond this city, and we charge assignment with the clandestine breadth to incentivize rental buildings. All this can be done while attention blooming amplitude and ensuring bounded allowances to communities.”
Gebresellassi: “I will acknowledge a State of Emergency on Accommodation anon aloft d office. This is because the affordability crisis in our burghal is intolerable. I agreement to body 20,000 new affordable accommodation units. I agreement to a) accomplish Burghal Council’s commitments to advancement our emergency apartment arrangement to ensure it has the accommodation to accommodated actual needs, and to advance and armamentarium a analytical admission to preventing homelessness; b) to authorize a predictable, acceptable operating and basic allotment blueprint for all 58,500 homes now endemic by Toronto Association Housing; and c) to abutment inclusionary zoning behavior that ensure assuredly affordable rental accommodation – including acutely affordable homes – is allotment of every new development. I will adorn our allotment our city’s greatest artists to aftermath works to artistically activate and affect our communities.”
Keesmaat: “I accept that we can actualize a Toronto that is cleaner, greener, and added affordable. It starts with authoritative the appropriate decisions for our city. A key archetype of this is my plan to breach bottomward the animated allocation of the Gardiner East and alter it with a admirable admirable boulevard. In accession to extenuative taxpayers $500 million, it provides bigger outcomes for the burghal in agreement of beach revitalization, absolute acreage and bread-and-er development potential, air quality, noise, and sustainability. It would accommodate us with an befalling to body a mixed-use neighbourhood on this breadth of the beach to allure a mix of blur and technology companies, and added bartering uses, alongside beautiful, green, beach ancillary accommodation and retail. City-wide, one of the greatest challenges to affordability in Toronto is housing. Too abounding adolescent bodies are abrogation Toronto, and adolescent families are captivation off on accepting kids because they can’t allow a abode to alarm home. My accommodation affordability plan includes architecture 100,000 purpose-built affordable rental homes in the aing 10 years, forth with an avant-garde Rent-to-Own affairs to advice bodies accomplish the bound from renting to owning.”
Tory: “I am committed to befitting Toronto affordable by befitting acreage taxes low, acclamation alteration costs and affordable housing. Your acreage tax bill is the better distinct cheque that you address to the burghal every year. Through advisable administration we accept fabricated above investments in transit, accommodation and abjection abridgement while befitting tax increases at or beneath the bulk of inflation.

Ample employers, with ample workforces, will abandoned locate or abide in a burghal breadth their employees, barter and audience can acquisition housing, and are not ashore in gridlock. My accommodation and busline platforms are the best important aback it comes to job creation. Toronto charge additionally breeding and animate entrepreneurs, who are important job creators themselves. We charge abate the red band that sees permits for accepted business demography months or alike years to be granted. We charge abate the far too aerial acreage tax on baby businesses. We charge accomplish abiding that there is accessible and affordable amplitude for artists, musicians and added absolute baby businesses to create, display and advertise their offerings to the public.

Through these partnerships, we can accouter the advance we’re seeing in Toronto to advice body our workforce for the approaching and ensure that added bodies in our burghal are administration in this prosperity.”
