The Toronto Police have released more details in the hit-and-run killing of a man near Crossroads Plaza last week. They say that at around 11 p.m., Saturday, January 22, the driver of a black 2004–2005 BMW 3-series sedan was driving northbound. He struck a pedestrian and did not remain at the scene.
The same car was seen about 15 minutes later near Weston and Lawrence.
They police also say the car will have damage to the front passenger headlight and right-turn assembly, a missing passenger-side mirror, a broken or missing grille insert, and a broken windshield on the passenger side.
The police are asking for dashcam or security camera footage from anyone who was in the area.
On February 10, the Etobicoke-York Committee of Adjustment will discuss a proposed self-storage facility and fast-food restaurant at 1480 Jane St—the now-empty lot that used to have a fish wholesaler and a pallet recycler.
Presently, there’s nothing on the site.
The plans include a 6-storey storage building and a 2-storey drive-through. They require a planning amendment because they are too dense, are too close to two property lines, and have too much hard-surface area and too little parking.

City staff have been considering how golf courses—including Scarlett Woods—can be better used by the public to “increase public space access” and “balance multiple and competing desired uses for the site”.
Consultations found that community members were most interested in improving golf play, trail access, and providing additional or complementary programming. Making (or keeping) city-run golf courses affordable was also an important theme.
Attendees and respondents said that Scarlett Woods should
Create better walking and hiking trails
Provide opportunities for growing food
Improve environmental protection, and improve flood control down river.
Provide off-season uses, including skiing and dog walking
