John De Marco

Ward 14 - Toronto-Danforth

Q1: Do you believe that increasing electric micro-mobility use in Toronto will help reduce carbon emissions, help Toronto meet its climate goals, and reduce traffic and car use?

A1: Yes.

Q2: Do you support legalizing the use of e-scooters in the City of Toronto based on rules in other major Canadian cities including sensible safety measures?

A2: Yes and our group got city Council to accept e-bikes in Feb. 2014, news to me that in spring of ’21 they banned them, had to be the cycle lobby.

Q3: Shared and rental e-scooters include many additional safety features including speed limiters and GPS locking to prevent riding in forbidden areas. These services have been very successful in other Canadian cities and in Europe. Do you support allowing shared and rental e-scooter services in the City of Toronto?

A3. Yes, but the battery systems only proved limited use.
