Now there's an usual discussion title: Yesterday my children and their friends watched a drug deal happen in daylight (6pm) on the laneway behind the fieldhouse at Hideaway Park. They were close enough to see who handed the money over. I saw the person who according to the children was the buyer walk away and I recognise him... I did not see the 'so called' dealer? What do I do here?

At risk of pissing off the freedom fighters in this group, I will reply with…omg an opinion.  

Unfortunately you have to go into the police station and make a complaint.  Calling the police apparently does nothing.  I have multiple drug deals in sheer daylight in the very same place on a regular basis, near my house. I called in 4 times one week, and apparently that's not enough to have anything done, other than have someone drive by.  Deals go down all the time, but I was told by someone on the phone at the "Toronto Police Service" that I have to go into the division and file a formal complaint.  I guess a phone call isn't a formal complaint.  

An alternative is to go to the crimestoppers website and provide a complaint there.  I've done this in the past, but nothing has been done.

I don't like it any more than you do, but apparently it's completely fine by some people.  

The ever changing name of the poster also known as Scotch Egg!  Great to see your acerbic wit back on this board! Keep it up!

Well, the sad nature of parts of this neighbourhood need some kind of humour poked at it.  Race to the bottom!

We've had some of the same challenges in our neck of the woods. We've found great help in 55 Division, especially in the past few months, in helping clean up our neighbourhood. We picked up some community complaint reports from 55 and hand them back in when there is activity. If you do get those community complaint forms, hand them out to your neighbours too so everyone can take part. Now we have a couple main contacts we can email and we get quick responses. We've been really please with the response so far.

Good luck to you!

LOL I left the house today, and Mr. Druglord was there.  My neighbours are busy at work during the day, so that might be a way to avoid getting any police after you if you do things in plain daylight.  

I think it's amazing that in 2013, I have to corral the neighbourhood to get something done.  And if I get nobody to reply, then I guess there's no crime if homeowners aren't home to see the crap happening on their street.  

Does anyone know anything about the dead body found in the lane running north/south closest to Pape, south of Dundas? Not sure of the date - maybe Sunday? Speculation that it might be drug related and given the subject of this discussion would make sense.

When I launched this site in early 2009, one of the compelling reasons for doing so was that I was struck by how many of the businesses in Leslieville are locally owned and operated.  Another big observation was (and still is) how proud most…
