In this post, Mr. Lamb admits that the need for this “correction” was known as early as December 2016. But there was no communication to residents of the Brant Park building let alone to neighbouring residents and businesses about what had transpired or about what was going to happen.
Then on Friday April 21, a powerful generator, physically the size of a freight box car, was switched on. Alarm bells didn't go off right away as there has been plenty of construction noise in the area and community residents are becoming used to that. But when the disturbance continued throughout the night, neighbours became sensitized … calling the police, contacting 311, emailing Councillor Cressy's office. Of course, by now it was now Saturday morning. Luckily (or ironically depending on how you look at it) Saturday was Earth Day and Joe Cressy himself stopped by the St. Andrew’s Playground cleanup effort, heard the racket (from both the generator and irate neighbours) and promised prompt action.
Monday morning finally saw action and by evening Councillor Cressy was able to give this report. This evening (Tuesday the 26th) we received this further update from his office.
We will continue to keep the neighbourhood up to date on the progress of (and explanation for) this debacle via our mailing list which anyone can join.
