TTC wants to go conjoin the junction 40 bus for you and Lambton 30, or in other words moving part of the the Lambton 30, to the Junction 40 route.

Text from the TTC

40 JUNCTION
Currently, buses operate along Dundas Street West between Runnymede Loop (on the northwest corner of Runnymede Road and Dundas Street West) and Dundas West Station.

The TTC proposes operating two branches of the route:

  • 40A branch: Buses operate along Dundas Street West between Kipling and Dundas West stations.
  • 40B branch: Buses operate along Dundas Street West between Jane Street and Dundas West Station. At Jane, buses would loop along Jane, St. Clair Avenue West and Runnymede Road.

Buses operating along both branches would replace current 30 Lambton service west of Runnymede.

30 LAMBTON
Currently, buses operate along Dundas Street West between Kipling Station and High Park Avenue, then along High Park Avenue and High Park Station. Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from mid-May to Labour Day, the TTC extends the path so that buses operate into High Park. 


The TTC proposes operating buses only between Runnymede Loop (on the northwest corner of Runnymede Road and Dundas Street West) and High Park Station. Buses would continue to operate into High Park late-spring and summer weekends.

Buses operating along the 40 Junction route would replace 30 Lambton service west of Runnymede.

Gord Perks tweet on new building in Toronto, being build outside of regs.


Many small/medium developers, meaning those building low and medium rise, get giddy regularly on Toronto lack of council duty to correct development for residential buildings.





Much of the new condo stock purchases in the city are for investment with airbub or high cost rental not for the purchasers use as a home.





Reading any of the Crain’s publishing company’s city business newspapers, Chicago, New York, Detroit, clearly shows what can be done when cities enforce their building and land use codes.





Need prof ask your Uber delivery person about condo use for airbub and high end rentals.

The Canadian Pacific Railway ™ way of hunt, ladies are expected to do what the men do.

The officials of the Canadian Pacific Railway ™ who have to do with the arrangements for the forthcoming- wolf hunt. Inquiries are pouring in and with answering them and perfecting the arrangements everyone is kept in a state of tension. Judging from all these outward and visible signs the number of sportsmen donning the snowshoes and engaging in the task of hunting the wary wolf will be much larger than was the case last year. All these preparations look bad for "Mingan." Many different ways of hunting willbe employed. Rifles, traps and poison will all be used. The stay in the woods will be considerably longer as some days ahead will be used in preparatory work. Nothing which
experience can suggest will be left un-done and the chances of securing some pelts are at least promising. The locality selected is the Kippewa country in the Province of Quebec and variety will likely be given by a hunt after caribou.

In any event an enjoyable mid-wmter outing is certain and the prospects of substantial success good. The party will meet on January 17th and they have certainly some interesting experiences ahead of them.

The ladies of Montreal have been so inspired by these preparations that eight of them have applied for permission to join in the hunt. They will tramp on snowshoes and rough it exactly as the, men are expected to do.

Russell cars of Toronto Junction tested on the roads of England, 1905,06,07,08,09, a period when the Junction had Tesla class companies.


1905,06,07,08,09, a period when the Junction had Tesla class companies. During this period simple gasoline engunes powered factories, boats/launches, portable machines for farming and cars.

The Junction. was home much of Toronto high tech companies od the period frim cars to boats, and machinery, the area teamed with foundries, engine makers,power distribution companies.

Russell cars are the pioneer autos in Canada and well maintain the lead they have deservedly achieved. A beautiful catalogue has been issued by the Canada Cycle and Motor Company, Limited, Toronto Junction, giving full particulars of these cars and showing how well suited they are for rough Canadian roads.

The well known Russel cars were shown by the Canada Cycle and Motor Company, Limited, TorontoJunction, and made a most creditable display. These cars have been put to the most severe tests throughout Canada and in each instance have come out triumphant. They have heen taken to England and on the roads of that country have succeeded in giving as great satisfaction as they have in Canada. Amongst the tests was one of a thousand miles through the wilds of Muskoka. Others have been made in Australia where the difficulties are as great as in Canada. In all these varied trials the "Russet" came out well and showed in economy of repairs the value and strength of the machines. Many satisfied customers have testified to the pleasures given through the use of these cars, and the appearance made appeared to justify all that has been said about the fine "Russell"

Denmark plans to build nine artificial islands in southern Copenhagen

Denmark plans to build nine artificial islands in southern Copenhagen in a bid to attract businesses, the government announced this week, amid an ongoing housing and office space shortage.




The plan will see an extension of the Avedøre Holme area south of the Danish capital, creating nine new islands to be given the collective name Holmene.

It's not the first time the government has presented an ambitious project to reclaim land from the sea. Last autumn, plans were announced to build 20,000 homes on a brand new island in the Øresund, with a completion date an estimated 50 years into the future.

Projected Harbour Work for Toronto in 1919. 100 years ago

Projected HarbourWork for Toronto in 1919. The Toronto Harbor Commissioners' budget for this year contemplates an expenditure of $3,300,000. It does not, how- ever, mean that all the work covered by this amount will be carried on through the year, but it is anticipated that work will be done involving an expenditure of approximately $2,000,000. Much will de-pend on general financial conditions, and the opportunities offered for placing the commissioners' bonds on the market. It is intended to continue what is known as the industrial harbor development, in an easterly direction from the point where it now ends between John St. and Spadina Ave., through to York St., and also to reclaim about 90 acres of additional land for industrial purposes, and possibly some park reclamation work in addition.


It is also the intention, providing the city's approval is obtained, to top dress and complete the park and amusement areas between Sunnyside and the Humber River, but this cannot be completed for the present, owing to the unfinished condition of the Dominion Government breakwater. Provision will also be made for roadways and sidewalk construction, sewers, etc. So far as the Dominion Government work in the harbor is concerned, it is expected that some 4,400 ft. of crib work on the western breakwater will be completed, and also the turning basin in the eastern section, thus providing for about 4,000 ft. of dock wall, with concrete superstructure. The circulating channel will also be completed, providing for dockage construction for another 1,800 ft.
