    Hello Fixer

    I was wondering if we could do something about two huge ship bumper tires that have washed up on Cherry Beach in the dog park. During the summer we dogwalkers tried to move them but it was to much for us. We need a tow truck to pull them out.. Many travelers to Toronto would see these tires when they fly into the Billy Bishop Airport and I think they do not give a good impression of our city. The water level is so low now that it would be a perfect time to have them removed. One tire has been there for over six years and the other one washed up last winter. It would mean so much to me and other people if these tires were removed. Thank you so much for all the good things that you have done for our beautiful city. Glenn Gillespie 416 699 0943

    UPDATE FEB.2 2013

    Sadly ....The two tires are still there...Our Toronto Star 'Fixer' has not written about them as of Feb.2. Hope they will in the future. I encourage more people to vote on this problem hoping that will help. We have a lot of pride in our beach and seeing these tires in our Lake Ontario is sad. Thank you for allowing me to bring this problem to the media.

  • 495 Sherbourne St Toronto, ON M4X 1K7, Canada - Toronto
    Two cabs in the Sherbourne separated lane. Can we get some enforcement of the law?
  • Jarvis & Lakeshore Toronto, Ontario - Toronto
    The west portion of the north-south crosswalk at Jarvis & Lakeshore is extremely dangerous for older or disabled persons. The crosswalk is bumpy almost beyond description - wavy up and down. Sure to throw someone for a loop eventually,
  • Robertson Crescent Toronto, ON - Toronto
    Well, your article on illegal actions by the police brought to mind a very similar one down at the harbour by the police marine station. Not only have they been parking illegally on the street and the sidewalk with both police vehicles and civilian vehicles (I’m assuming they are the personal vehicles of the police), they also park in front of a fire hydrant, none are ever ticketed. The excuse of it is an emergency doesn’t wash in front of the fire hydrant because sometimes it is the same vehicle sitting there for days. I have been walking past here 2 or 3 times a week for the past 10 years so I have a pretty good picture of how the police abuse there privileged position. There is a gated parking lot beside the police station that is often not full. The pictures were taken a couple of years ago but nothing has changed since then.
  • 235 Carlton St Toronto, ON - Toronto
    There is only one ring here in front of the stores where I shop, and it is often full.
  • Parliament And Dundas Toronto, ON - Toronto
    There are only 2 ring-posts near the grocery store. Sure there are lots near the coffee shop just around the corner, but that's a long way to walk with a sack of potatoes. More bike parking in view of the store please.
  • 45 Bay St Toronto, ON - Toronto
    For over 5 months the sewer grate at the northwest corner of bay and lakeshore has been recessed. I have seen countless pylons and construction cones that have been placed in it destroyed by cars, and large amounts of debris filling the crater. Virtually impossible to cycle near the curb because of it. Its a shame and a terrible safety issue. Pathetic that our city has taken so long to fix this.
  • 158 College St Toronto, ON - Toronto
    Have you ever tried to cross University Avenue at College Street? If not, you have 26 seconds to scurry across. I can run 10 km in an hour, but I can barely make it across University at this intersection before the lights turn red. Yes there is an island in the middle of University Avenue, and yes I could run across but let's not forget that Toronto's major hospitals are located just south of this intersection on both sides of University Avenue and many seniors and individuals with mobility issues are trying to cross this street. The last thing I want to do is to run into any of these individuals. In contrast, you get 50 seconds to cross College Street at this intersection - so why such a discrepancy?

    The south wall of 431 Spadina Ave is defaced with graffiti vandalism at the third floor level
  • No Sidewalk Archived
    97-149 Queens Quay E Toronto, ON - Toronto
    In front of the Redpath Sugar Refinary and also to the west next to it, there is no sidewalk on the south side of Queen's Quay. This makes walking from Harbourfront to Sugar Beach very difficult, as all you have to walk on is the ground between the road and the buildings and it is covered with large pieces of gravel. It seems a shame to have such a great area as Sugar Beach, but with such a difficult walk to get there from Yonge street. Not a good impression for tourists either. Can something be done to fix this?
