I wanted to post a note on here about a new service being provided by the Toronto Police Service. It's called TPS LINKS and it finally replaces our very old but successful autodialer program. It allows for you to sign up online and receive notifications from us from local street closures to community safety issues to city wide issues. The only downfall is any voice messages you will receive from 55 will have my voice attached to it.

To sign up go to the following and click on the TPSlinks icon to follow the registration process.

OK once again, problems at the Tasty Chicken on a friday night.  A suprise,  No.  A continuing blight on the neighbourhood, yes.  Rob when and how are police services going to address the issues created by this particular business?  No more rhetoric please, a direct and difinative  answer would be appreciated.

Hi folks

To this point the only reports of brake lines being cut in 55 are located in the beach
Comment by biscuit on October 28, 2010 at 8:35am
Officer Rob, have any Leslieville residents' cars had the brake lines cut? On the news it said nearly all the incidents were in the Beaches, but that a few cases had come up in other neighbourhoods as well.

When I was out running today, I noticed some suspicious activity at the NW corner of Pape and Eastern. A sketchy looking character (white male, around 5'7", brown hair, wearing a jacket - maybe dark blue) was looking around to see if being watched and then starting searching in the low bushes against the building on the Eastern side. He was searching for a while and then picked something up, looked around again and then walked away. When I saw the beginning of the odd activity, I stopped nearby to pretend to stretch. I thought it was odd to be searching around in the bushes like that - officers may want to check it out.

I've noticed increased drug use/trafficking in the laneway/alley between Pape and Brooklyn Ave. There is a tenant in the building at Queen and Pape that seems to be dealing. I used to see patrol cars often, but in the past few months I haven't seen as much Police presence. It's clear that this area needs it! Any comments from 55?

That's great to hear, Randy! Here's hoping it becomes a trend.
Comment by Randy Buck on September 13, 2010 at 4:14pm
Noticed today that two officers on bikes converged on 2 people at the back of Leslieville Park at the baseball diamond.

Seems 55 has heard our concerns and is snapping the whip.

It was a great idea to have 55 join the discussion here.

Just by way of info, "Scooter" McClaren who was arrested for the fight at Tasty Chicken, and who was involved in the viscious beating behind Scotia Bank, is out of jail and back wandering the streets of Leslieville. And so the problems will continue unabated.

Thanks Egg. I thought of that afterwards. I will certainly use my phone camera going forward. I was kicking myself after I saw him in my backyard.

Leslieville Local Business Marketing - 10 ways to use

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…
