"I went back to the roots of our area, the borders that define our neighbourhood, and the source of an exciting future - the rail lines. More specifically I was inspired a lot by vintage signage of Grand Trunk Railways for the type, a major rail company that used to operate the hood (fun history fact, Hebert James Symington, the namesake of the avenue worked for Grand Trunk, (http://db1.archives.queensu.ca/ica-atom/index.php/herbert-james-symington-fonds;rad). The rail line in perspective moving forward and upward I think also alludes nicely to the future impact rail will have on our hood when the UP trains start."

2014 Municipal Election

The next Toronto municipal election is on Monday October 27, 2014.

Let's use this forum to discuss any issues, especially local ones, that might come up in the election. Try to stick to municipal politics, specific to the Junction Triangle and overall Ward 18 areas, though mayoral politics and the effect on us locally is certainly valid.

Here's the final list of Ward 18 candidates, as of September 12 2014. Links go to official campaign websites, Twitter feeds, Facebook pages, etc. Please leave any updated links in the comments below.

The official up-to-date list is maintained on the City's website:

Some additional info links:

  • Position Primer - Probably the most comprehensive summary of candidates' positions/policies, as put together by Women in Toronto Politics
  • Choice Storm website has been maintaining a good list of candidate info too.

Notes From 26 Ernest Ave. Meeting, July 22 2014

The following are some brief notes and photos of the display boards that were presented at the July 22 2014 planning meeting for 26 Ernest Ave. IMPORTANT: This development proposal is in very early stages and can possibly change in very drastic ways. Nothing here is final. This proposal will be updated with input from various City departments, City planning staff, the local councillor's office, and from feedback received from the public.

The Preliminary Staff Report will be presented to Toronto and East York Community Council on August 12 2014. It will be available online at: http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/decisionBodyProfile.do?function=doPrepare&de...

The final staff report to City Council will likely be in Q1 2015.

The developer hopes to start sales later this year (via their sales centre at Davenport and Lansdowne), with construction beginning sometime in 2015.

Comments and feedback are welcome in the discussion forums, but should also be directed to:
