Two schools have COVID cases

Although it’s only the second day of class, the TDSB says that two Weston- and Mount Dennis-area schools have students with active COVID infections.

York Memorial has one confirmed case; it draws students from Mount Dennis.

Richview also has one case; it is the French Immersion high school for Weston.

The schools have not announced plans to close. These are the only two cases of students with COVID in the TDSB.

According to legend, these are supposed to be the three most important factors when assessing a home’s value. There’s a home in Mount Dennis at 27 Brownville that is for sale for a hundred dollars shy of $600,000. The much complained about home has been vacant for years and is not safe to live in but the 30 x 92ft. lot is for sale. As an added incentive, the vendors will throw in a demolition permit obtained last year.

The value of the lot lies in the proximity to the new Mount Dennis Station on the Eglinton Crosstown Line or Line 5 as it will be known officially. The station that incorporates the old Kodak recreation building will be a short walk away when it opens in 2022. There is a railway theme to the home as it backs onto the UP Express, GO and CP tracks. That shouldn’t be an issue with good soundproofing. Whether or not the home is worth $600,000 will be decided by the market.

Meeting on speeding tomorrow

Frances Nunziata’s office will be holding a meeting about speeding on Church Street tomorrow, September 16, in Elm Park, starting at 6 p.m.

In her flyer, she says, “My office has received many complains about speeding on Church Street over the years. With the recent repaving I have received some requests from residents to have Transportation Services review potential modifications to the portion between Pine Street and Elm Stree to help in addressing these concerns.”

You are asked to wear a mask if you attend the meeting.

Upcoming events

And, finally, some good news.

Weston has awesome garage sales, but here’s a new twist: free stuff.

September 27 will be Second-Hand Sunday—and you’re invited to put out the treasures you no longer treasure and browse the streets to scout out what might be useful to you.

But if you’re putting out a bike or a mechanical watch, call me first!


The TTC is organizing a fund-raising run for the United Way. It will be Sunday, October 4.
