John Lorinc, one of the few downtown journalists who truly seems to care about Weston and Mount Dennis, had an excellent article in the Globe this weekend about the failure of Metrolinx to employ local workers.
On a foggy morning this week, Wendy Whiteley dropped by the office – a construction trailer – for some practical advice about her résumé. A retired educational assistant, she wasn’t sure whether the trailer – which is open only one morning a week – will help matters. “If [Metrolinx is] trying to expand, they need to come up with job opportunities for people in the area,” she said. “Myself, I haven’t heard of anyone who lives in the area who has gained from all this.”
