Insurance industry issues warning over Uber
Toronto Sun July 30, 2015 Shawn Jeffords
TORONTO – Insurance industry officials warn that Uber drivers don’t have the proper accident coverage and are putting themselves and the public at risk when they get behind the wheel.
“Uber drivers routinely rely upon personal auto policies, which exclude the commercial activity of carrying paying passengers leaving Uber’s passengers, pedestrians, cyclists, occupants of other vehicles and Uber drivers exposed to uninsured risk in the event of a claim.

Further to my previous flyer with respect to having rats in the neighbourhood, I am writing to give you an update.
Rats Update 2nd flyer
We have been able to identify, as best as we possibly can, the problem and the area where the rats are coming from.
The City of Toronto is undertaking a review of the operations of Uber and similar technologies, including the public’s interest in them and their impacts on Toronto’s taxicab and limousine industries.
At the July 2015 meeting of Toronto City Council, I introduced Motion MM8.13 which recommended that:
“City Council request the City Manager, in consultation with the Chief Executive Officer of the Toronto Transit Commission, to report to the September 30 and October 1, 2015 City Council meeting on a complete financial analysis and cost breakdown of the expenditures for the proposed $181 million Toronto Transit Commission McNicoll Bus Garage approved by Toronto City Council.”

Hopes of Agincourt coalition fighting plan dashed by Ontario’s environment ministry
Scarborough-Mirror June 27, 2015 Mike Adler
Ontario Environment Minister Glen Murray has approved the McNicoll Bus Garage in Agincourt, dashing hopes of a local coalition which fought to stop it.
The TTC has for years planned to build a facility, north of McNicoll Avenue and east of Kennedy Road, which can service or store 250 buses at a time.
Based on information from Environment Canada, Toronto’s Medical Officer of Health has issued a Heat Alert for Toronto today. The Heat Alert will be in effect until further notice.
During a Heat Alert, the public is encouraged to call or visit family, friends and neighbours, especially isolated adults and seniors who are at greater risk of suffering from heat-related illness, to make sure they are cool and drinking plenty of fluids. Other groups at risk include people with chronic illnesses, individuals with limited mobility or certain mental health illnesses, infants and young children, people on certain medications, and those who are homeless.
