June 2, 2020 – COVID-19 Updates

COVID-19 Updates – June 2, 2020

I have been watching, with dismay, the situation in the United States and here in Canada.

It is abhorrent that in this day and age, people are still being targeted – for being ‘different’.

We all have the right to be treated equally.

I believe that we must Respect and Accept each other. We should Celebrate our diversity and Embrace our differences, because we are all part of the human RACE.

Please take a moment to pass along this message to your family, neighbours and friends. If you would like to sign someone up for our e-mailing list, please send me their e-mail addresses at  jim@karygiannis.net

  • Despite COVID-19 you still need to cut your grass– Municipal Code Chapter 489, Grass and Weeds and Chapter 743, Streets and Sidewalks outline outlines standards with respect to grass, weeds and vegetation on private property, streets and sidewalks. These standards apply to properties in Toronto and include standards for any gardens on the public portions of a property.
