I am new to this forum and actually live just on the west side of the bridge so I guess I am not officially part of the Junction Triangle, but I am very interested in bringing the communities on either side of the bridge closer together.

Please use this forum for discussing local issues related to the upcoming June 12 2014 Ontario Provincial Election.
Keep in mind that this website is dedicated to the Junction Triangle neighbourhood. Let's keep the discussions here focused on local issues and our Davenport candidates.
A few links to start:
The official list maintained by Elections Ontario is here. Below is a summary with links to websites and social media accounts. Last updated June 2 2014.
New stop signs were recently installed at the intersection of Paton Road and Campbell Avenue for east-west traffic. This is a good thing, and it has been a long time coming: this route is frequently used by speeders as a short cut. The intersection is heavily used by children and families, often walking north to Perth Public School.
The problem is, for the most part, cars are not stopping. I have made multiple observances of cars speeding through the new stop signs since their installation. Perhaps it is because the signs are inset from the road and difficult to see?
So a "heads up" to those using this intersection and assuming cars will stop for you, your car, or your kids. I've submitted a complaint, we'll see what happens. The more the better.
