First the bad news…but keep reading ’till the end cuz there’s good news too.
1. I understand there was another break-in on Milverton at Monarch Park. It happened in broad daylight, through a front door. The owners aren’t sure if anything was taken yet – but are doing inventory. It was basically a smash and grab.
2. We, too, were robbed this week. Somebody broke into our truck. Seems there are more of these things happening lately. What we know from Toronto Police that if you are a victim of any sort of crime then you should absolutely report it – even if it’s something small. Also, keep an eye out for strange behaviour or for cars parked in places where they shouldn’t be. On our summer walk-abouts with police they reiterated to us that the best way to keep our neighbourhood safe is to know your neighbours, keep on a porch light at night and report absolutely anything and everything to police.

4. Sarah is one of our fabulous Business Revitalization Team members. She organized the grand opening at Plank Road Market on Sunday – a huge success. She has started up her own blog – East End Pioneer. Sarah’s on maternity leave so she spends a lot of time walking and that makes for a whole lot of great local blog fodder. (It’s also how DECA got started but that’s another story). In any case, Sarah has spotted a new Espresso bar at 1832 Danforth at Glebemount and a new spinning studio just west of Coxwell at 1506 Danforth. Two fewer empty storefronts – hoooray!
