PRESS RELEASE - Thornhill All Candidates Meeting

Thornhill Municipal All Candidates Meeting Ė Thursday, October 13th, 2022

(Thornhill, Ont. October 13, 2022): Thornhill residents will have an opportunity to meet and ask questions of the registered candidates running for office in the upcoming October 14 to 24 Markham Municipal Election.

Organized and hosted by Aileen-Willowbrook Residents Association and Ward One (South) Thornhill Residents Inc., the Municipal All Candidates Meeting will be held as follows:

Date: Thursday, October 13
Time: 7:15 pm. Doors open at 7:00 pm
Location: Thornlea Secondary School, 8075 Bayview Avenue, Thornhill

Thornhill is one of the southern York Regionís fastest growing communities facing unprecedented urban intensification and population growth.
The Provinceís Places to Grow legislation, TOCs and MZOs, has created a tremendous burden on municipalities struggling, with minimal funding sources, to provide and meet essential infrastructure needs and services for a growing population.

Healthcare and timely access to medical services and treatment is a serious concern with many new residents unable to find a family doctor accepting new patients. With an increase in population it will be even more difficult to get a family doctor increasing demand on ERs.

Traffic gridlock is an escalating problem that continues to worsen, even with the Yonge Street Subway extension that is going under people's houses against the residents' wishes to keep "Yonge Street on Yonge".

All Thornhill residents are welcome to attend the Municipal All Candidates Meeting, ask questions and let their voice be heard by the candidates.

The All Candidates Meeting is organized and sponsored by the Ward One South Thornhill Residents Inc and Aileen Willowbrook Residents Association. The two residents associations together with other residents groups cover more than 10 000 households between the Yonge Street and Leslie Street area of Thornhill. They successfully worked with the Council of Markham to have the Shouldice Lands protected as a park .
