    I like almond milk. They cater to lots of vegan options which is very very nice!

    Wow thanks for the update. I didn't think that actually did happen in the neigbourhood.

  • Dead man found in front of Bank of Montreal   2 years 8 weeks ago

    This Month Only is a blight on our community. Every night people screaming, yelling, blatantly selling drugs outside, constant fighting, drunk people getting into cars, harassment of bystanders, bikers idly revving their motorcycles at 3 a.m - the list goes on. I really wish the police would crack down on this place.

  • Dead man found in front of Bank of Montreal   2 years 8 weeks ago

    Yes police knocked on our doors. Asking if we heard any noises. They said that somebody "passed away" from the bar. It is unfortunate that police comes only if somebody "passes away". Those over-serving (often to drivers) bars are a real danger to our residents.

    There is NON EMERGENCY Police line to call for drug deals and drunk drivers:

    there a line for liqueur license enforcment
    Staff Sergeant. Ed Wong: (416) 326-7161.

  • 5th Anniversary of Junction Triangle Naming Project   2 years 9 weeks ago

    Hi, I had emailed the photos from the Junction Triangle's 5th Anniversary event to you awhile ago. Did you receive them?

  • Community Cleanup Day   2 years 9 weeks ago

    Yes...I just fixed that. I'm easily confused. :)

  • Community Cleanup Day   2 years 9 weeks ago

    I think that May and April have been interposed here, I could be wrong.

  • Community Cleanup Day   2 years 9 weeks ago

    I'm guessing April, and it's a typo...

  • End of a JT landmark?   2 years 9 weeks ago

    Reading the comments about the Wallace train pedestrian overpass. I was at two development meetings from the builder of the these new townhouses, and both times people asked about the Edwin road extension and were told that the new stair configuration would not involve a bridge closure for any amount of time. The new stairs do not continue in a straight line down, they will fold back towards the rail path, but at both meetings they said that the new stairs would be built and in place, and then they would remove the old staircase in order to extend Edwin down to Wallace.

    If this has changed it is totally against the original planned project. People are referencing Vic's comments but I do not see them, if Vic has already said the same thing I am saying here, sorry about that!

  • Davenport Diamond Grade Separation   2 years 9 weeks ago

    Is the Metrolinx Super Bridge going to help the residents of Bloordale, Davenport Village and the Junction Triangle? Is it going to elevate the neighbourhood or just the trains?
    The Junction Triangle Rail Committee has a list of five ideas to make the plan better and we have started a discussion about the entire project that Metrolinx is attempting to avoid. Please join us.

  • Southwest Corner of Dupont and Symington   2 years 10 weeks ago

    A lot of these entries are old I can say up to 2013 there has been nothing done about this site Hydro used it when they were burying cables on Dupont. I asked Sobey's if they would consider building on the site they said they would investigate and heard nothing further since then and I moved away from the area but have been back coming through in 2014 and still nothing. I had no idea anything was buried underneath that would explain a lot. At the time I had only lived there that year and frustrated at the lack of proper grocery in the hood as 20 corner stores in the area is not helping things and totally useless it amazed me any of them are still around. So I am guessing once the Union Lofts go up no one will bother? I had asked the library but they are moving to Campbell I never understood why. This site has so much potential but goes unused because no one wants to bother even though the hood is changing. I had mentioned to Sobey's about that awful mall opposite with the bakery but no answer. It's sad even with new townhomes and a few new restos and cafes this side of Dupont remains neglected.

  • Redevelopment of the Wallace-Perth Church property (Union Lofts)   2 years 10 weeks ago

    Church at Perth Wallace update. So many folks have been annoyed with the construction trucks on the sidewalks, blocking the street, and the deliveries by large trucks during to and from school hours. There have been quite a few calls to the police (like a week ago when a truck was parked in the center of the intersection for 40 minutes at 4pm. The police came close to charging the driver.) Today by chance I ran into an inspector from the Ministry of Labour who said they had received complaints as well and that he was now actively involved in monitoring the project. He will be visiting the site on a regular basis from now on.There was many things he was not happy about and will be ordering them to stop deliveries during the morning and afternoon school walks and correcting the unsafe storage of building supplies. This inspector has the power to shut the site down so we should see some improvements.

  • End of a JT landmark?   2 years 11 weeks ago

    Thanks, that's reassuring.

  • End of a JT landmark?   2 years 11 weeks ago

    The only change is to reconfigure the east side stairs so that access is in the north-south direction, winding back on itself a once half way up. There will be no change to the main span or west side stairs. I live inthe neighbourhood and am doing work for the developer on this bridge with access to the building plans. The main span of the bridge is listed with the City as a heritage structure, so it would generally not be possible to demolish it without a very valid reason. Aside from a very cool structuee, this bridge serves a very usefull purpose for the community and is very well used by many people.

  • End of a JT landmark?   2 years 11 weeks ago

    Vic is correct. The bridge will be closed later this summer for 2 weeks. We are hoping that there will be bird netting put under the bridge too so people can sit under the bridge without heing pooed on.

  • End of a JT landmark?   2 years 11 weeks ago

    Unless something recently changed, the plan has been to just reconfigure the staircase so it does not interfere with the new road.

  • Davenport Diamond Grade Separation   2 years 11 weeks ago

    Seems like they are inviting select households to be part of the residents panel. I don't think it is fair to allow metrolinx to decide who can be on this panel. Has anyone received an invite who lives close to the tracks? I somehow doubt it. I would like to sign up on this panel, but require a 6 digit code. I think this is terrible, will bring down property values, add more pollution to the neighbourhood including sound, vibration, air, etc... Elevating a diesel train makes the pollution worse. This should be underground, end of story.

    You're probably thinking of Baguette & Co. at Dupont and Edwin:

  • Davenport Diamond Grade Separation   2 years 12 weeks ago

    The Barrie corridor and the Georgetown corridor should meet at Weston and from Weston to Union station should be a double track, in another words both track join to run parallel each other, so from York University instead going strait to Union station, go to join the Georgetown at Weston and run parallel to Union station. If a bridge is needed, is much easier to serve both at the same time.

  • Property Tax Reduction [Re: Nitta Gelatin Odour]   2 years 12 weeks ago

    i have just filed a request to the corresponding office to review my property tax and potentially have it reduced. i cant wait to see what they say.

  • Property Tax Reduction [Re: Nitta Gelatin Odour]   2 years 12 weeks ago

    i see. so there is nothing else we can do to get rid of this nasty smell...maybe i'll move out of the area soon if this smell does not go smells really really bad, and it was my fault for not realizing this smell prior to purchasing the new home...just sour!!!!
