Vote for Simon Fogel in Ward 9 - Davenport

Toronto elects a new city council this fall. This is the best chance we’ll ever have to make e-scooters legal in Toronto. The 2022 Toronto municipal election is scheduled to be held on Monday, October 24, 2022.

Simon Fogel

Ward 9 - Davenport

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. Active transportation is preferable but it is not government’s job to tell people to exercise more.

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. Policing this is a waste of resources.

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. They are a boon to tourism. Rules need to be in place to prevent them being littered on the sidewalks however.
