A poem written by former MCA Vice President, Tracy Rafferty.
The Maryvale Community Association was on its way out,
When Michael Thompson gathered us to share what it was about.
We formed the new executive by choosing our roles
And poured over the constitution to modernize controls.
Signing at the bank, incorporating, summer events,
Supporting Philadelphia trips and avoiding dissent.
Meeting with Magnum Opus and lots of city staff,
Ending meetings in the mall, sharing a laugh.
We’ve met in the library, backyards, basements and the park.
Many times in the clubhouse, even in the dark.
Bad weather, good weather, a really big storm,
But our conversations have always been friendly and warm.
It’s been a pleasure and honour to serve with you here
As we met to discuss Maryvale, year after year.
I’ll still be attending and we’ll never lose touch,
Because the time with each of you has always meant so much.
Scarborough News & Events
Scarborough Scores a big win at the Federal Election Boundaries Commission:
Scarborough scores a big win at the Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission! The final report of the Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission was released last week. It has been covered extensively in local media. All media reports are framing this as a win for Scarborough. We agree. It’s a big improvement over the Commission’s initial proposal, which took away a Scarborough riding and placed northwest Scarborough into North York ridings. The final report provides us with six Scarborough-focused ridings once again, all with “Scarborough” front and centre in their name. Four of them are completely within Scarborough. Scarborough Agincourt is back; it now includes a small sliver of North York. Scarborough Centre, now named “Scarborough Centre Don Valley East”, is 55% in Scarborough and 45% in North York. So it’s not perfect, but it’s much better than in the initial report. SCRO wants to thank the thousands of Scarborough residents who defended Scarborough so proudly and passionately during the Commission’s consultation process. Our voices were heard loud and clear and we made a difference. Toronto still has only has 24 seats, down from 25 seats, which is disappointing. Diluting the political representation of Ontario’s economic engine and cultural hub is a loss for our city.
