I just want to warn everyone that SUMMITT ENERGY has been going around Ottawa (Avalon neighborhood in Orleans). I had someone at my door on July 17, 2013. He said he was affiliated with Ontario Energy Board and wanted to verify if I was paying HydroOne's "new price" or "old price". When he put me on the phone and they asked if I agreed to a 5 year contract, I hung up the phone and slammed the door in his face.
Summitt Energy is a scumbag company and Carlo Cavaliere (rep no OK 1364) is a DISHONEST, MISLEADING, LYING jerk. If he comes to your door, tell him to get lost and call the police.

West Toronto Railpath extension planning begins
Project will extend popular bike path south of Dundas St. West
By Andrew Lupton, CBC News Posted: Jul 3, 2013 11:02 AM ET Last Updated: Jul 3, 2013 11:15 AM ET
Since its completion in 2009, the West Toronto Railpath has earned widespread praise, won design awards and become a busy route for cyclists in the city’s west end.
Running two kilometres along an abandoned railway spur, the paved, two-lane cycling and pedestrian path goes from Dundas Street West near College Street to just north of Dupont Street in the Junction neighbourhood.
Read the rest of the article here: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/story/2013/07/03/toronto-west-rail...
Some pictures of the railpath extension proposal from the meeting last night. The next public meeting will be in Sept, along with a 60 day (?) period for further public input. A more detailed proposal will be tabled at that time.
I think all the additional train horns we hear right now are because of the construction at the Bloor GO station and the West Toronto Diamond (just north of Dupont). Basically, the whole stretch next to the JT is under construction. When the construction crews are on site, the trains blast way more warning horns when passing through. They also have people on-site blasting smaller hand-held air horns when trains are approaching to warn the workers (those horns are not nearly as loud as the train horns though).
I'd expect we'll be hearing plenty of horns over the next couple of years...
I don't get it? Noise? Does it matter? The trains go by and they purposly blow their horns!!!! Some louder than others. there is no grade? Seriously ? I have called and complained, they are still doing it :(
Brown & Storey Architects have posted an interesting sequence of images of Dundas Street West from their upcoming presentation Sharing Boundaries. You can view the images here http://www.brownandstorey.com/projects/metrolinx/dundas/ and see the complete presentation on Tuesday evening at 7 p.m. at the Perth Avenue Housing Co-Op.
"A large percentage of this is traffic looking for shortcuts on residential side streets instead of staying on major arterial roads such as Bloor, Symington, and Dupont. Volume, speeding, and noise not only effects safety but also the quality of life in a community"
Just a reminder that Symington is also a residential street, with many kids and seniors. Symington Ave has 3 crossing guards, more then any other street in the JT neighbourhood. I would be very careful having to much traffic going up & down this street, this also can effect SAFETY as someone wrote.
I will also cut and past this for Michael from Ana's office. JF
We now have a new business in the old Yasi's location, the corner of Wallace and Campbell. They opened last Saturday. The owners have worked really hard on this place.
Thanks for the update Michael. Much appreciated.

Hi there, Michael Vieira here from Councillor Bailão's office. The Junction Triangle Management Traffic Management Committee traffic plan is still a go. Our office is in the process of ironing out a few details with the City's Transportation Services dept. An update will be posted on both this site and Councillor Bailão's website in a few days.
Thank you for your patience.

Constituency Assistant to Councillor Ana Bailão
I would suggest using the Bike path and stay off of the busier streets if at all possible. there is still a lot of traffic even if it is a 1 way. (sterling Road is a 1 way street and yet we still have drivers that go the wrong way down the street.)
Does anyone know what the status of this Junction Triangle Management Plan?
This is a great initiative, it would be nice to see if there is some progress on this.
Thanx very Much. That Helps.
We use Dundas Dovercourt Veterinary Hospital http://www.dundasvethospital.com and have been very happy there. Dr. Dayed and his staff are professional and above all courteous.
I hope this helps
I want to join volunteer program because my education and Professional Experience is in this field I will send my resume
Is Metrolinx replacing enough of the trees it's cut down?
Posted by Chris Bateman / MAY 13, 2013 4 Comments
Metrolinx has cut down more than 160 trees and plants on the Georgetown South rail corridor as part of construction work for the Union-Pearson Express, the latest figures show, and that's not sitting right with one local advocacy group.
We take our cat to Bloor Court vet, 1079 Bloor W., east of Dufferin on the south side. They are very nice and seem to offer good prices.
After we moved, we took our dog to Dundas West Animal Hospital. I really wasn't impressed, actually. I may leave it to my partner to do future visits, or we may move her. But I wouldn't recommend it.
The windows in my townhouse (not the same development) will quite frequently develop moisture in fall and early spring when it is cool outside and after a rain/snow event. From what I've read I think its because the house is too air tight and not allowing the moisture to escape. Opening the window a small crack fixed the issue and didn't affect the temperature in a great way.
I would suggest getting a "Hygrometer" to determine the humidity level within various rooms. I purchased a cheap electronic thermometer with a Hygrometer built in.

I had 2 cats. I went to Dundas West Animal Hospital in the Junction and had a number of issues. When I requested my file be sent from that vet to another I found personal comments made about me...nice, very professional!!
I ended up at Bathurst-Dupont Animal Hospital and never had ANY of the issues that I had at Dundas West. Prices were much more reasonable too.
