TONY LUK Policy Platform

Tony Luk, equipped with years of local community involvement, extensive management experience and a sincere desire to serve his community, aspires to foster local economic development, reinforce crime prevention measures and help build a unified and inclusive Scarborough-Agincourt community.

Tony’s 4 key focus areas:

1. Fight against COVID-19, Promote Local Economy Recovery
  • Work with anti-pandemic suppliers to help provide and promote use of affordable personal protective and preventive equipment for businesses and residents alike;
  • Promote research into and eventually, implementation of new testing technologies;
  • Enhance public awareness of the COVID-19 vaccine and combat vaccine misinformation through community engagement;
  • Help small business owners and self-employed individuals navigate and apply for government-funded loans and subsidies during the pandemic
2. Build a Safer Community
  • Work with government officials and the Toronto Police Service on sufficient funding to protect the local community and reduce crime and violence;
  • Increase awareness and enforcement of community safety zones and traffic rules, especially around schools and senior homes;
  • Improve street lighting, promote neighbourhood watch and increase accessibility to security systems
3. Champion Local Community Accessibility
  • Support and prioritize the Sheppard East Subway Extension for the convenience of our community’s commuters;
  • Help public parks and green spaces remain well-maintained and widely available throughout Scarborough-Agincourt for all residents, including families, children and pet-owners; 
  • Collaborate with surrounding regions and cities to share knowledge and best practices relating to the city’s most prominent issues, such as fostering inclusivity and supporting our senior population 
4. Enhance Local Community Services 
  • Increase accessibility and funding for childcare, senior care and other community services, such as children’s daycare, local food banks, long-term care homes and local recreation centres; 
  • Fight for affordability within an increasingly expensive city by increasing affordable housing, attracting new businesses to combat unemployment and advocating for fair public transit costs;
  • Organize regular (virtual and eventually, in-person) meetings with residents in the community to solicit feedback and better understand their desires and priorities
