It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, minus the snow at the moment. Nonetheless winter is coming.
Although there hasn’t been a major snowfall yet, the City of Toronto is well prepared for Winter. The City of Toronto has created a multi-pronged plan for clearing snow and ice on city streets and sidewalks. The first goal during a snow fall is to keep the roads clear for emergency and TTC vehicles. Click to view details. You can also track where plows and salt trucks are online tracking map.
The City of Toronto has teamed up with the world's largest community-based traffic and navigation app, Waze. Through this partnership, the City of Toronto and Waze's "Connected Citizens Program", Waze app users will have free access to the City's real-time traffic and road data, providing a greater ability for motorists to avoid road closures, construction and traffic jams. For more information about Waze's Connected Citizens Program is available here.
With the Holiday Season right around the corner I would like to talk about the Holiday Wish List. The City of Toronto has put together a list of agencies that run shelters, drop-in and other services asking them what gifts would bring cheer to their clients during the holidays.
There are fifty agencies on the list this year, which can be found here. On this list you can find details on which specific items each client's needs, along with contacts and information about volunteer opportunities and holiday events. The most requested items on this year's list are winter clothes, gift cards, toiletries, baby products and non-perishable food. There is also an opportunity to support the 43 Division Auxiliary Police Toy Drive by dropping off new unwrapped toys at the division's front desk, 4331 Lawrence Avenue East. Toy Drive flyer here
While preparing for the upcoming cold months let us help out the homeless and vulnerable so they too can have a warm holiday season.
All My Best,
Paul W. Ainslie
