In 1878 there was land in the area owned by a Cooper, and by a Campbell.
I wouldnt take my posting too seriously. : )
But there IS a serious economic aspect to this story:
Wow, as a bearded 30 year old who lives in the triangle, I kinda find this offensive.
Hi there, thanks for mentioning the Historical Maps of Toronto site! Just a quick note -- i've shifted the image hosting for the maps on my site to google drive. The dropbox links above may or may not continue to work as time passes. I second the notion of finding the change in an archival bylaw. The other approach you might take is looking through successive years of city directories to figure out when the change occurred.
Nothing has happened yet. Not sure what the status of that is.
I've heard the name change from Coopers to Symington occured because the family that owned this land and had it partitioned to develop it, his accountant was named Symington and maybe that person helped him greatly in his business dealings so he changed the name to appreciate his accountants work.
Again, that's what I heard some years ago, perhaps it's documented somewhere
Dupont Between Annete and Emmerson is called Royce and does not connect to Dupont which runs only between Gladstone and Davenport. Super Cool!
I'd like the neighbourhood to have something for everyone. It would suck if it was just a strip of hipster bars, but also suck if it was a bunch of crappy sports bars too. But I'm totally happy with a bit of everything.
With all Respect Scott D;
I would rather see "Hipster Virus" spreading than
"This Month Only Bar/Eduardo's BBQ Chicken" virus spading.
Sorry About That,
nobody from the neighbourhood plays basket ball just get rid of it its useless for this neighbourhood I haved lived here for at least 30 years and have not once seen anyone from the neighbourhood play basket ball the basket ball should be moved across the tracks at Pelham
Good day. I am hoping to connect with anyone that was part of the elite boxing members of Beaches Boxing Club, owner was Joey Bagnato, Frank Pucci back about 1971, 72. Jerry Bates was my trainer. Clyde Grey was also a frequent visitor to the gym. We had George Foreman train at the gym for his Foreman versus six event at Maple Leaf Gardens.
Just looking to see who is out there. Thanks.
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.
Hi New to JT,

Is the supper club still active? when is the next date?
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.
