City of Toronto names a section of the Waterfront Trail in memory of Councillor Ron Moeser
The Mayor of Toronto joined the Councillor for Ward 44 Scarborough East, members of the community and the Moeser family today to name a Scarborough section of the Waterfront Trail in memory of Councillor Ron Moeser.

In June, City Council approved the naming of the section of the Waterfront Trail that runs through Ward 44 Scarborough East as the Ron Moeser Trail. The naming took place prior to the Ron Moeser Memorial Run and gave the public an opportunity to recognize the many contributions Councillor Moeser made to Toronto and the local community.

"Ron was a devoted husband and father. He proudly served his city and the people of Scarborough for more than 20 years," said the Mayor. "During his time as a councillor, Ron fought for the creation and protection of public space and the natural environment. I'm glad we were able to honour his memory today by dedicating this section of the Waterfront Trail in his name."

Councillor Moeser served the Scarborough community, first as Councillor in the former City of Scarborough and then as the Ward 44 Councillor since the City of Toronto's amalgamation in 1998. Throughout his many years in municipal government, Councillor Moeser continually strived to implement changes to improve the quality of life for his constituents and for the creation and preservation of public green space for all Torontonians. He was instrumental in the creation of Rouge Park, Canada’s largest urban park.

In his final term, Councillor Moeser served on the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority Board, the City-School Boards Advisory Committee, the Economic Development Committee and the Scarborough Community Council. In previous Council terms, he served on Budget Committee, as Chair of the Scarborough Community Council and on boards for Toronto Hydro, Toronto Zoo, CNE and Centenary Hospital.

Councillor Moeser passed away at the age of 74 on April 18, 2017.
