Winter Stations a hit with former Beachers I want to thank the BMN team for the coverage of all things Beach-related, and specifically for the recent articles about the winter warming art installations created on the five lifeguard stands. The article and background information about the installations piqued the interest of my husband and myself. […]

Eastern construction will extend East End traffic chaos The city is planning to close Eastern Avenue basically between Leslie and Coxwell for an entire year for sewer upgrades.  No westbound traffic and only one lane eastbound. Why this wasn’t being done while the work along Leslie disrupted traffic is totally beyond comprehension. Why it would […]

A gift of goodwill from a mystery “Christmas Angel” I just wanted to express my deepest gratitude to the “Christmas Angel” who found my wallet in the Valumart parking lot just a few days before Christmas and turned it in. I had bought a few items in the store and accidentally left my wallet in […]

Negative campaign ads not fit for community newspapers I was born and raised in the beaches and have been reading Beach Metro for nearly my full 23 years. When I opened the latest issue (October 21st) and saw the attack ad against Mary Margaret McMahon I did a double take – I thought I had […]

Transit plans should not exclude vibrant communities For many Torontonians, transit is a huge concern, and the mayoral candidate with the best transit plan will win my vote. Unfortunately, I don’t think any of the plans are any good. Not a single scenario includes a stop at the Beach. This is a vibrant destination for […]

Malvern war memorial vulnerable without protection I am a Malvern alumnus. The statue has been the target of vandals for over 45 years. The solution is to move it inside. If and when the vandals are caught and convicted, the next part of the solution is to sue the family for damages. The family will […]

Beach canine situation is going to the dogs It’s good that more off-leash bylaw enforcement will occur in parks. Now, how about everywhere else? Almost daily, I see rambunctious dogs off their leashes, running roughshod over people’s property. Invariably the owner is nearby, carrying the leash, so these dogs do not just get loose on […]
