TORONTONIANS – ON OCTOBER 27 MAKE YOUR VOTE COUNT
Decisions made by elected officials affect our daily lives in countless ways. We require continued support from the City of Toronto for feral cats and Trap Neuter Return (TNR).
The City of Toronto needs to continue its engagement with us so we can do more to help ease the crisis of over-population and to improve the quality of life of street cats. That’s why it’s important that we all vote for candidates who pledge to support TNR projects.
We polled each candidate for Mayor and Councilor in Toronto and we are pleased to share the results of this poll with you: 37 candidates responded to our poll, and 25 of them pledged to support our work. Of particular note is the fact that of all the candidates for Mayor, ONLY ONE responded – Olivia Chow has pledged her support for TNR if she is elected Mayor of Toronto.
The list of those candidates who pledged to support us can be found below (sorted in order of Ward, then by last name).
Please note that in Wards 2, 6, 17,20 & 42 more than one candidate declared support for TNR
The next step is for each of us to exercise our civic responsibility by turning out to vote on October 27th
TORONTO STREET CATS IN ACTION
We thank our good friend E.K. Park, for capturing who we are on film. In the following videos E.K. documents a “day in the life” of one our free feral cat spay/neuter clinics and one of our shelter building workshops. In both videos she has done justice demonstrating the extraordinary work that our volunteers do to help street cats
