Kelsey Agnew, the food service manager of the Regional Food Distribution Association (RFDA), gets ready to ride with a bike trailer loaded with soup and sandwiches Tuesday. Agnew has stepped up to take the Commuter Challenge this week by cycling to work at the RFDA and making deliveries using a bike trailer borrowed from the Roots to Harvest. She commuted six kilometres to work and then, after making the soup and sandwiches with volunteers at the RFDA, delivered them via bike to the Salvation Army Booth Centre — a 10 kilometre ride. Agnew plans on using city transit to make deliveries today as a way to raise awareness about food access issues and the difficulties faced by people who have to rely on transit to get groceries.

Premier Doug Ford plans to cut the size of Toronto's council from 47 to 25. Closer to home, some have questioned the value of ward councillors as well as the size of Thunder Bay's council. The present system elects 13 members -- one mayor, five at-large councillors and seven ward councillors.
