The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) is continuing its push to establish a bus maintenance and storage facility on the northeast side of McNicoll Avenue at Kennedy Road. The TTC is in the process of preparing the Environmental Project Report. An important part of preparing the Environmental Project Report is gathering public input through public consultation.
I would like to take this opportunity to extend my best wishes to members of the Canadian Grenadian community on the occasion of Grenadian Independence Day.
On February 7, 1974, Grenada was granted independence from the United Kingdom and became a sovereign nation – the first country in the Eastern Caribbean to attain this status. In the years immediately preceding independence, Grenada was known as an “Associated State of the United Kingdom”, which meant that it was responsible for its own internal affairs while the United Kingdom was responsible for defence and foreign affairs.
My thoughts and prayers are with the families of those who lost loved ones in the aftermath of the Taiwan TransAsia Airways plane crash on February 4, 2015. I pray that those who have been injured quickly recover and that all who are suffering have the strength they will need in the weeks and months to come.

Every winter, since 2005, Armenian Family Support Services, Holy Trinity Armenian Church, host a symbolic Soup Kitchen, serving delicious soup and lavash as a reminder that there are many in our neighbourhoods and around the world that need the support of community members to provide hunger relief. The recent cold temperatures and tragic deaths in our city attest to this need.
