Toronto Public Health is looking for you to provide your opinion on the possible decriminalization of drugs for personal use. The City of Toronto Drug Strategy is seeking an exemption under section 56 Controlled Drugs and Substance Act. The exemption, if approved, would decriminalize the charge for simple possession and permit the possession of all drugs for personal use within the City boundaries.

Join the NO MORE HIGHWAYS Day of Action
Saturday July 24, 2021
The Ontario government is planning two new highways through Ontario's precious farmland and Greenbelt - Highway 413 and the Holland Marsh Highway (Bradford Bypass).If built, the highways would pave over farms, forests, wetlands and a portion of the Greenbelt and cost taxpayers upwards of $6-10 Billion. Highway 413 alone would also add over 17 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, at a time when cutting emissions is more urgent than ever.
Enough is enough. We need to show the province that Ontarians do not want more megahighways, we want local produce, effective public transit and livable, walkable communities.
On Saturday, July 24th, Ontarians from across the region will hold rallies and events to tell the provincial government what we want: "No More Highways."

TORONTO – The Ontario government has released a discussion paper for public feedback that will inform the province’s first transportation plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe. Ontario is building a better transportation system to connect communities and keep goods and people moving across the province, including in Ontario’s economic engine, the Greater Golden Horseshoe.
“We have a long-term vision for the Greater Golden Horseshoe that takes us to 2051, built on connected transportation that’s safe, seamless and accessible,” said Caroline Mulroney, Minister of Transportation. “This discussion paper is an important opportunity to gain further insights that will help shape a better transportation network for our province’s future.”
The Greater Golden Horseshoe is an integrated economic region and its communities are diverse with different transportation needs. The discussion paper considers many new challenges including economic transitions, new technologies and shifting demographics that will alter the way people use the transportation system.
The paper outlines initiatives and concepts that address mobility in the region, are designed to meet collective goals and transportation challenges of the future and sets out priority near-term actions as a foundation to achieve this vision.
Through a consultation posting on the Environmental Registry of Ontario as well as an online feedback form, the Ontario government is seeking public input on ways to achieve our vision, including:
The proposed plan would help guide and align decisions and investments over the long-term to ensure other levels of government, transportation agencies, industry, local businesses and other service providers are working collaboratively to shape the transportation system.
The province will carefully consider and incorporate feedback received over the next few months as we work towards releasing the Greater Golden Horseshoe Transportation Plan later in 2021.
The past few years have been tough for everyone, especially restaurants. Let’s all support our local stores with pick up or take out orders, and enjoy the wide variety of food and beverage options available in our neighbourhood. The choice of dining is so large, you could visit a different restaurant every day for 3 months!
Here is a list of restaurants in Bay Cloverhill, organized by location, starting with streets that have an east/west orientation, then streets that run north/south. The starting point is Bay and Charles. This list is not comprehensive, and some locations are temporarily closed. If you have any updates or additions to the list, email us at email@example.com

A very warm welcome to our newest member, Karma Condos at 15 Grenville Street! We congratulate the Board of TSCC 2532 and their Property Manager on becoming part of the Bay Cloverhill Community Association and look forward to their participation in making the neighbourhood better for everyone.
In 2009, Lifetime Developments partnered with CentreCourt Developments to create a 50 storey, 498 unit condominium building named Karma Condos. Occupancy began in 2016.
One of the interesting parts of the complex is the John Irwin House at 21 Grenville. This Second Empire style home is designated under Part IV and Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act, since it was built in 1873 for John Irwin, and occupied by a civil engineer named W. D. Hale. The property survived demolition of many houses on Grenville in 1922, as a result of the expansion of Bay Street to accommodate Maple Leaf Gardens and Eaton's College Street store (now College Park). During the construction of Karma Condos, the historic house was relocated from the northwest corner of the property to the northeast corner, at the leisurely rate of 10 inches per day.
