Votes against the community position: 2
Michael Walker is a veteran councillor who has consistently supported progressive issues on council. His voting record in the last council showed that he consistently supported the community position and he effectively resisted the Lastman business dominated agenda. Walker has made his reputation as an ardent advocate of local democracy. One of his greatest strengths is that he is not afraid to speak out and defend the interests of the city and his constituents. He took on the Toronto Port Authority and got sued for his efforts and was a strong voice against the Minto development at Yonge and Eglinton. Walker has worked tirelessly to push for election finance reforms at City Council. His success will serve as a strong legacy for this long-standing councillor.
Michael Walker is the Chair of the Administration Committee and is on the Nominating Committee.
Located in Uptown Toronto, Ward 22 includes parts of Forest Hill, Deer Park, and Yonge Street between Summerhill and Eglinton.
