Winter Safety Tips
Every winter whether snow fall values are high or not, ice is always a factor in slip and falls.
If you identify a slippery sidewalk or public area , you can assist by reporting the area to www.Toronto 311.ca.
Preparing for winter conditions isn’t just about salt and sand. We also need to think about clothing, equipment, and footwear. Some of us also have contracts for moving snow to think about.
Dig out that snow brush for the car, put your emergency equipment and collapsible shovels back in your vehicle. Pull out those hats and mitts for the kids…
Proposed Townhouse Development in Bayview Village
A developer is proposing to demolish seven houses and build 22 three-storey townhouses stretching from Burleigh Heights south to close to Blithfield. This will be a dangerous precedent if approved and could lead to similarly-high townhouses up and down Bayview and across Sheppard. We need our community’s help in opposing this proposed development.
