While Toronto remains one of the safest cities in the world, the city has been shaken by a series of gun crimes in recent months. Whether in your neighborhood or not, violence and crime affect individuals and businesses across the city. That's why we all have a responsibility to address issues of community safety. On September 26th, Mayor David Miller joins Rod Phillips, President of the Canadian Club of Toronto and Bill Whittaker, Q.C., President of the Empire Club of Canada, to speak about opportunities for Toronto businesses to partner with the City and the community to help make and keep Toronto safe.

David Miller was elected Mayor of Toronto on November 10, 2003. He has a degree in economics from Harvard University, a law degree from the University of Toronto and remains a member of the Law Society of Upper Canada. Before running for public office, he was a partner at the prominent Toronto law firm Aird & Berlis, where he specialized in employment and immigration law and shareholder rights. Prior to becoming Mayor, David Miller was a city councilor for nine years and the first Toronto mayor to sit as a TTC commissioner.

Mayor Miller will be available for questions following his speech - approx. 1:45 PM.
