  • 300 Yonge Toronto, ON - Toronto
    This summer has seen a drastic rise in numbers and sound volume of street preachers at Yonge and Dundas square. Every weekend without fail they descend on the high traffic intersection with an arsenal of extremely loud megaphones casting warnings of fire and brimstone that can be heard from a far. They sometimes block the road or sidewalk and distract drivers while harassing tourists and locals alike. I understand that free speech is important to any democracy and people should have the right to preach their beliefs in a public forum, however they do not have the right to use electronic sound amplifications that drown out any opposing views and risk damaging people's ears. The noise by-law specifically prohibits using these megaphones but the Toronto police seem hesitant to enforce this by-law.

  • Yonge St & Dundas St. Toronto, ON - Toronto
    Post and rings on Dundas through to Bay, and surrounding Dundas station are full of bikes. Yonge St. needs more parking on west side south of Dundas!

  • 50 Mcgill St. Toronto, ON - Toronto
    I have been talking to the City of Toronto, its transportation and parks departments, as well as my City Councillor's staff since January, 2013 regarding some problems that the city acknowledges exist but have yet to resolve. Perhaps you can help move things along.

    The "parkette" at the western, (foot-end) of McGill St. (College/Yonge area) used to have three benches, two garbage cans and a flower bed. All of that is gone and the city claims it will rectify the problem and replace the benches. To date, nothing has happened and it looks quite barren. Many seniors used the area and now there are no seats or waste receptacles. Also, the city left a valve 6" above ground level and bolted a warning cone over it. Not very classy for a city trying to look first-rate. Also, the restaurant's patio (probably illegal) used to have wrought iron fencing. The fencing has been removed and now leans up against the building creating a major eye-sore, along with the soil which doesn't even have a hedge.

    I hope something can be done.

    Cheers! All my best to you

  • Multiple Locations Toronto, Ontario - Toronto

    Now that summer is almost upon us I notice that Toronto Parking Enforcement vehicles and Police Cars once again have there rear licence plates obstructed by bicycle racks in violation of HTA 13(2)

    I trust they will be issuing themselves tickets ?

  • Bay And Richmond Toronto, Ontario - Toronto
    The Richmond St. entrance (north side of Richmond east of Bay) to Hudson's Bay as well as half a block towards Yonge St. has been blocked by fencing for more several months for "construction". No construction appears. The sidewalk is blocked and one needs to walk on the street or the south side from Bay St. to Yonge. If repairs were being done, so be it. However, it's been 4 or 5 months and there's no sign or any repairs to the street, sidewalk or anything else. Very annoying!

  • 415 B Yonge Street Toronto, ON M5B 2E7, Canada - Toronto
    Doesn't make sense that a newly install pathway had been torn up already.
