GJFA’s October 2019 forum on Sidewalk Labs’ proposal for developing part of Toronto’s lakefront was filled to capacity. GJFA sent a letter outlining wide-ranging concerns and conditions for consideration as Waterfront Toronto decides on October 31st whether and how to proceed.
See letter here.
This primer, a work in progress, is an educational and discussion piece pointing to some of the fundamental issues raised by the Sidewalk Labs (Google) plan for 200 acres on the Toronto Waterfront. A plan which proposes fundamental changes to city governance and data collection, changes that could affect all of us who live in the city.
See David Robertson’s “Ten Reasons to say no: A Primer on Sidewalk Labs’ Plan for the Waterfront.”

Last Friday, 25 million people worldwide marched for climate action, and this Friday, tens of thousands are expected to march in Canada. It’s never been clearer that people from all walks of life want immediate, meaningful action to drastically reduce greenhouse gases.
It is well past time for Toronto to declare a climate emergency. Dozens of Ontario municipalities like Ottawa, London, and Sudbury have formally acknowledged the urgency of the climate crisis. Toronto has not. Yet.
Climate change is the key issue of our time. While it is incumbent on all individuals, corporations, and governments to do more, Toronto is uniquely positioned to “think globally, act locally.” As Canada’s largest city and North America’s fourth largest municipality, Toronto must act responsibly, even ambitiously, in this critical fight.
When: Saturday, April 13th, 9:30 am to 6 pm.
Where: Steelworkers’ Hall (25 Cecil St) – free parking available at the rear.
The presentation is now available from the December 12, 2018 forum:

In Toronto’s October 22, 2018 Toronto municipal election, we must demand action against climate change.
The Good Jobs for All Coalition created the Election Charter for Climate Justice to support action now and after the election. It contains nine great measures that should be included in the City’s ongoing program to meet our greenhouse gas reduction targets.
