In the News
Two coyotes were recently sighted in the ravine on the east side of Burbank Drive between Forest Grove Drive and Bunty Lane. Although coyotes are usually not a risk to humans they have been known to come into residents' yards looking for food and it is not uncommon for them to attack and kill small pets on residential properties.

Statement made in the House of Commons
by MP Geng Tan on April 13, 2016
Mr. Speaker, the Bayview Village Association in my riding of Don Valley North is celebrating 60 years of service. It has always punched above its weight. The association has worked tirelessly to preserve the Village's sense of community and service. Fifty per cent of residents are members of the association. When they speak with one voice, all three levels of government listen. Members know that a community is not just a collection of houses. Since 1956, it has protected the village's high quality of life. I congratulate the President Tim Storus, Judi Codd, Joan King, Jan Siegel, and all Bayview Village Association members, for always putting community first.
