ARA In The News

The Annex Resident’s Association got a shout out from Ward 20’s councillor-elect Joe Cressy.

In an opinion piece http://gleanernews.ca/index.php/2014/10/25/its-time-to-build-our-city-again-2/#.VFZLnIcri-I in the Annex Gleaner, Cressy praised the ARA’s TreesPlease program for its beneficial effect on the environment.

“Yes, Rob Ford and Stephen Harper have their heads in the sand around climate change. But, in our local neighbourhoods, we have already experienced the effects of a changing environment, and the Annex Residents’ Association has already acted to improve the situation. Their
TreesPlease program works to survey, protect, and expand Toronto’s tree canopy thereby providing more shade, removing industrial emissions from the air, and increasing property values. This is a win-win situation, improving our environment and beautifying our neighbourhoods in the process.”

Cressy points out that TreesPlease is a good model for solving problems because it involves local residents. The ARA believes that the best solutions always involve people and is dedicated to achieving this at a local level in our neighborhood.
