What’s all that racket?

Just a reminder that if you want to know more about the upcoming development project at 2359 Danforth Avenue (Morris Auction building, between Woodbine and Main), here’s your gentle reminder that the official consultation takes place this Tuesday, November 12 @ 7:00-8:30pm.  For details, here is our post about it from last week.

One last racket to talk about…

We have heard about a company running what people are describing as a scam in the neighbourhood. They call and offer cheap or free water testing, and then when they come to your home, inevitably discover a terrible problem and then try to sell you an expensive water filtration system.  If you get a call like this, google the company before you make any arrangement to have them into your home, so at least you are making an informed decision.

If you are worried about lead in your water and your house was built before the mid-1950s, call 311 to arrange for free testing through the City of Toronto.  You have to pick up and drop off your own samples, but at least you know that you can rely on the answers, and the price is right!  Here is the link for more info: http://www.toronto.ca/311/knowledgebase/35/101000039735.html

  1. re the water testing… bags with sample bottles were left on Rhodes Ave
    last week with a notice explaining that the sample would be picked up next day. there was a tiny print statement that they were not part of the City etc. Hope no-one got caught in this scam.
