President's Update

Georgina Balascas

Hello everyone!

Hi! As I am writing this update, we have already seen the first real sign of winter: SNOW!

I personally think it is too early. It is still the fall season according to the calendar so why is winter always so anxious to start? Can’t it wait until December 22nd, the actual date of the winter solstice to show up? I shouldn’t complain so much because we are very fortunate in Canada that we can experience all the beautiful seasons that nature has to offer!

The great thing about the early snow fall is that it signals that the holidays are coming and soon the festive lights and decorations will soon be on display in Markland Wood.

Municipal Election Candidates Meeting October 10, 2018

on Tuesday, 18 September 2018.

Toronto Votes 2018“With Great Power comes Great Responsibility” (quote from Spiderman) and there is no greater responsibility than electing (hiring) those who will govern us for the next term in office. Our future governments will determine the way we live for not only their next term in office but will also impact future generations in the way our children and grandchildren live. We are privileged to live in a country and province where we have the opportunity to elect our government and Marklanders hold a prestigious standing where we have a much higher voting turnout than most ridings in Canada, Ontario and the City of Toronto. Obviously the residents of Markland Wood care about how we live and our future generations.

The act of voting takes only moments but will have a huge impact on lives. With that being said, it is the MWHA’s honour to provide you with the opportunity to meet, question and learn about your Municipal candidates who will be asking for your vote. At the time of writing this article, there are only a few candidates who are declared and will ask for your vote in the upcoming Toronto Municipal Election on October 22nd, however, we expect many others from various Parties to participate and of course, all are welcome.
