Former President and CEO of Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment and current Toronto Foundation Vice Chair, Richard Peddie returns to the studio. This time Peddie and Karim talk about how to make Toronto a more liveable and caring city.
Last fall I had the pleasure to have former Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment boss Richard Peddie in studio for a brief chat about his career and leadership style. Next week, Peddie is returning to the studio. This time we’re going to focus on city-building. Specifically, Toronto.
In preparation for this episode, I’m sourcing questions you might have on how Toronto can work better for you and your community.
And Peddie has a question for you.
I have a question for your listeners Would they support a property tax increase to support more day care, after school programs, keeping pools open, more shelter staff, and more. Each 1% would fund a lot of everyday things that would make the city more livable for thousands.
Would you support a property tax increase in Toronto to make this city even greater for everybody?
