MPP Han Dong Coffee and Condos Town Hall

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. This bill has received great support from Government and Opposition members, industry professionals, community stakeholders and residents throughout the Province!

We hope that you will join us at Aug 15th!

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.
