Dear fellow residents’ associations,
Budget pressure for the City of Toronto threatened the closure of as many as 14 city swimming pools. Currently, eight have been given a reprieve but six others are still going to be closed. The swimming pool at Keele Public School and Community Centre is one of them. At the West Bend Community Association meeting on April 18, Cheri DiNovo, our MPP, said that she would pursue this matter with the provincial government. Even though the closure is a city budget decision, the province’s decision not to pay its share of provincially mandated services is a deciding factor in these cuts. The City started debating the municipal budget today. Please pass on the following information to your members. We will keep you posted on upcoming events.
We’ll pass on any further information that emerges.
