I-Metro-E :: City Region Downtown Relief Line

Transport/Transit is the most important infrastructure concerns and it is the area that our residents believe has the biggest impact on a City Region’s competitiveness and quality of life.

We need to take advantage of all open space that is available in Markham. We can turn it into a magnificent endless green space for our residents, while respecting nature and wildlife.

My vision for Markham is where we can enjoy fresh air, forests, green parklands and playing fields within minutes of our homes. We want a community where our residents can develop their skills and use their energy in healthy and wholesome ways.
