Markland Wood | Community Established in 1960

President's Update

Georgina Balascas

Hello Everyone,

As I am writing this update, I see the first real sign of winter: snow!! I am sure the skiers in our community are getting excited, but the golfers must be really upset that their season has come to an end. Although I don’t participate in either sport, I am not happy that winter is upon us! I am not looking forward to the cold and the long dark evenings, but at least we have much to look forward to.

The holidays are coming and soon the festive lights and decorations will be out in Markland Wood and we can enjoy their beauty as we walk or drive though our wonderful community. In addition, the annual Christmas Caravan is just around the corner happening on December 16th. Each year Markland Wood residents have an opportunity to share the spirit of Christmas with others who may not be as fortunate. We make our way through the community and we pick up your non-perishable food, gently used clothing or small furniture items. If you would like to join us, we meet at Markland Plaza at 8:45 a.m. that morning. I would love to see you there. So would Santa!

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.
