EY ADVOCATE 034: Will it ever end?

Posted by on Oct 8, 2017

Endless appeals allowed under Planning Act put EY family on bureaucratic merry-go-round Have you ever received a NOTICE from city council’s Committee of Adjustment informing you that your next door neighbour wants to build an addition on his house and needs a “minor variance” from the zoning by-laws in order to do so? In 2015 a Queensdale Avenue family got one of those notices and immediately realized that the “minor variance” requested by their next door neighbour would have a drastic impact on their own property.  Fortunately for the family, when they attended the Committee of Adjustment hearing their next door neighbour did not show up and, after hearing what the family had to say about the drastic impact the requested “minor variance” would have on their property, the committee rejected the proposal on the grounds that the requested variance was not “minor.” The Queensdale family then breathed a sigh of relief until the following year, 2016, when they got another notice for virtually the same “minor variance.”  Again the family and their supporters on Queensdale went to the Committee of Adjustment for a second time on the same proposal.  This time their next door neighbour did show up, but after listening to everyone the committee once more rejected the application on the grounds...

ADOPTABLE PETS 034: Anxious Izzy looking for his calm place

Posted by on Oct 8, 2017

Meet 6 year old Izzy! He is a sweet fellow who is looking for his perfect match.  He is part of our facilitated adoption program so he does not live here at the Toronto Humane Society and is instead trying to find a new home from the comfort of his current residence. This handsome lad suffers from separation anxiety.  Izzy can be vocal when left alone and would rather keep his family at home and all to himself.  We have been told that Izzy has lived with both cats and dogs and has done very well.  He also enjoys being in the company of children. Due to his anxiety and size, Izzy would do best in a house with a fenced in backyard where he can burn off some of his excess energy.  If you would like to meet Izzy or learn more about him, please...
