MPP Han Dong Coffee and Condos Town Hall

This is just a friendly reminder that Han Dong, Member of Provincial Parliament for Trinity-Spadina, will host a special Coffee & Condos Town Hall meeting, this coming Tuesday, August 15th at the Waterfront Neighbourhood Centre!

The event starts at 7pm and there will be coffee, tea and snacks available upon entry!

The tremendous increase in condos across the province has been accompanied by various challenges that needed to be addressed on behalf of owners, residents, managers, boards, and many others. That’s why this will be a great opportunity to hear more about the Protecting Condominium Owners Act!

Learn more about the updated legislation and ask your questions to Han and Ministry of Government and Consumer Service staff who will also be in attendance. We will also get an update on Han’s Private Members Bill 109 – The Reliable Elevators Act.

Power Outage and Restoration in CityPlace on July 12

Power Outage and Restoration on July 12

On Wednesday, July 12, 2017 from approximately 6:15 pm – 3:15 am, 7 highrise Condominium buildings in CityPlace faced a power outage includng 5 and 35 Mariner Terrace, 3 and 10 Navy Wharf Ct, 9 Spadina Ave, 11 Brunel Ct, and 15 Fort York Blvd.

Power was restored to the 7 Buildings starting at 3:05 am.

The cause being floated around is Switch gear failure at the Radisson Admiral Inn 249 Queens Quay. That equipment failure is being looked into and repaired. The feeders from the Front and Windsor Power Station were switched and repaired to restore power to CityPlace. Radisson is still without power on July 13.

We will await the official cause from Toronto Hyfro, once they have issued a release on the cause of this power outage.

Bike Share Toronto Free Ride Wednesdays in July

Bike Share Toronto Free Ride Wednesdays in July

See: https://bikesharetoronto.com/free-ride-wednesdays/ | http://www.metronews.ca/news/toronto/2017/06/23/bike-share-toronto-free-rides.html

Article Source: https://bikesharetoronto.com/

On Wednesdays, during the month of July rent a bike for up to 30 minutes and it is free.

“We are committed to improving how people move around the city, and that includes investing in bike sharing in the city to make it easier to travel by bike,” said Mayor Tory. “Cycling is a great way to get around the city, it’s good for fitness and it’s good for the environment. I encourage all Toronto residents and visitors to the city to take advantage of Free Ride Wednesdays in July.”

“We’re very pleased to offer this promotion to Torontonians,” said Toronto Parking Authority President Lorne Persiko. “It’s one way we can thank Torontonians for making Bike Share Toronto such a success, as witnessed by the increased number of rides month over month, and at the same time Celebrate Canada 150.”

More and more Torontonians are recognizing the benefits of bike sharing in the city.

June 21 saw a new record when the number of rides in a single day hit 6,491. In May of 2017 there were 110,096 rides, nearly double the 68,665 rides in May of last year.

Bike Share Toronto now has almost 9,000 active members and served up 830,000 rides last year. Riders have travelled a total of 15,864,047 kms since 2011, offsetting 3,014,169 kg of Co2 emissions.

Take advantage of Bike Share Toronto’s Free Ride Wednesdays in July!

Download the Transit app or visit the station map to find a station near you.
Go to the pay station at any of the 200 bike share stations between 12:01am and 11:59pm on one of the Wednesdays in July.

After completing the transaction, type in the code you received into the keypad on the left side of the docking point of the bike of your choice.

The goals of the foundation include promoting the understanding and awareness of the contribution to Canada by the Chinese Railroad Workers who participated in the construction of the first transcontinental railway (the CPR) that united Canada geographically and politically; promoting the awareness of the government’s legislation of unjust Immigration Acts against the Chinese pioneers and their families; establishing scholarships; and sponsoring other Canadian charitable organizations to promote Chinese Canadian History.

Construction Update: York-Bay-Yonge Ramp Demolition

Construction Update:
York-Bay-Yonge Ramp Demolition Now Complete

The demolition of the York-Bay-Yonge ramp is now complete. Work started on April 17 and has been completed ahead of schedule.

With the old ramp now demolished, the contractor has moved forward to complete the construction of the new ramp. Last year, 4 of the 5 piers (or bridge support structure) for the new ramp were built. To complete the construction of the new ramp, the contractor will be adding new girders (steel beams) to form the shape of the new ramp; when those pieces have been installed, the contractor will then install rebar and fill the form with concrete and install the de-icing mechanisms and lastly add asphalt.

In order to construct the new ramp, the eastbound on-ramp at Rees Street will need to be closed intermittently, Monday to Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. for the next 4 weeks to allow work to take place during the day and reduce overnight work.

More information and a sign up option for email updates is available at http://www.toronto.ca/simcoe-ramp or on Twitter (@TO_Gardiner_LS).
