There is an established link between grime and crime, which is reported in a lot of studies. The Junction currently has an a lot of this - grime spreading crime. Looking at the intersection of Keele St and Dundas St. West, and west to Mavity Ave, which is an area of higher crime and grime in the Junction the opinion proves itself .
Which is why it would seem reasonable that everyone should keep their area clean - free of garbage and grime. Yes the blog knows there is a garbage strike on, yet most of the other businesses and residents in the Junction managed to keep their properties clean - why not the people who own the store pictured above on Dundas St West . Insert update, And this is not to say the Sweet Potato store is directly contributing to crime, but adding to the grime iis not good for the community.
The local BIA hired even a dumpster for it's members - which they are one.
UPDATE: This post has stired a few people, other that the state of their garbage The Sweet Potato store is fine place, and extrapolating anything else about the establishment is just not right, this is simply a post about their garbage issue (not good).
