Marco Mendicino

Hello Eglinton-Lawrence!

The sun has arrived and Spring weather is here! I hope that everyone took the chance to enjoy the warmth last weekend. This week, I’ll be in Ottawa as the Government continues to work hard on the priorities that matter to Canadians. 

Investments in infrastructure lie at the heart of our Government’s agenda. On April 23rd, Minister Sohi announced a major investment in the purchase of new buses and refurbishment of the TTC’s existing bus fleet. These investments will mean Torontonians will be better able to get around from place to place and the system can accommodate increasing ridership demands.

On Saturday, May 5th, I will be co-hosting a Town Hall on Immigration featuring Minister Hussen in conjunction with my caucus colleagues, MPs Hon. Carolyn Bennett and Julie Dzerowicz. Please click HERE to RSVP.

On April 16th, Minister Hussen announced a historic policy change regarding Canada’s medical admissibility rules, and brought them in line to be more inclusive for persons living with disabilities

I was extremely proud to stand beside Minister Wilson-Raybould as her Parliamentary Secretary on March 29th, as she announced transformative legislation that will modernize the criminal justice system and reduce court delays. I recently put pen to paper and laid out my thoughts in the Toronto Sun as to how these changes will help solve the culture of complacency that has dogged the criminal courts.

The Government also knows meaningful action is needed to reduce gun-related violence. This is why, on March 20th, Minister Goodale introduced a bill to strengthen gun laws and improve public safety. Recently, I spoke with CP24 Live at Noon as to how these changes will help keep our communities safe.

As always, my constituency office is open and here to help! Feel free to drop by, Monday-Friday from 10am-4pm.
