Scientology is only going to cause great harm to the community – Push them OUT of Guelph!

The cherch of scientology is already in the process of moving to guelph, fucking off out of toronto because of the deadness and deadbeat (lack of stats on thursdays @ 2pm SHARP), however we cannot let them take over the city or negatively impact/affect the community of people there. We don’t want a clearwater happening in a beautiful city in ontario!

So many people are vulnerable to this dangerous, misleading, misinforming, deceptive, lying and insidious cult; youth, senior citizens, anyone suffering from a mental illness/impairment (that is often invisible unless acting out), addictions to street drugs or narcotics such as opiates, or alcohol of any kind/strength.

The “free stress/capacity tests” are the bait and switch thing, and they are often meant to make people feel fucking horrible about themselves, such if somebody was suffering from depression or has emotional issues with a bad relationship’ this could drive them right to suicide! That is the LAST thing anyone needs to be told they are a terrible/horrible/bad person.

We need to also educate the people about scientology’s dozens of front groups! ABLE, Applied scholastics, Youth/united for human rights international, drug-free marshals/citizens for a drug-free world, CCHR (citizens commission on human rights), the way to happiness, narconon! The list goes on. These make zero mention of scientology at all!

All in all, the cult of scientology needs to be ejected from guelph, and proactive educating of the public would be the only way to ensure they stay out. These parasites will go to no end to try and recruit people. They want to rid your of critical thinking skills, job/employment, education, social skills, communication skills and anything you were taught in school! Nobody wants to be deprived of that. Nobody needs disconnection to break up their family and loved ones.

Sincerely, a very concerned citizen, who supports the city of guelph to get scientology OUT!

Lack of playscapes, missing soccer/football fields, bmx/bike areas in the jane and woolner neighborhoods

This is a bit of a concern for me and the community, a park that isn’t as used as the playscape at 190 woolner ave (on average, there are 50 occupants, peak there’s close to 120!), lack of playscapes at the other neighboring buildings (200, 210, 220, 230, 767) lack of a soccer/football field (a small one that is) in woolner park, rusting swings at 777 jane street that need repair or replacement. 200 woolner used to have a nice set of swings, a slide too. It has since been converted to a parking lot that remains not fully utilized at all, with a number of abandoned vehicles parked there.

If some playscapes were added to the other buildings with the removal of some parking spaces, it would be allot better for those not wanting to take their sons/daughters across the street (or a few blocks) to the park. It only makes sense.

I think this community needs some improvements, some crosswalks could also be added on woolner ave, as many people dash across the street and I have seen drivers speed down without a care in the world, as if the road wasn’t being crossed or used. Or perhaps a tunnel (underpass) crossing? What about a BMX/bike park that weston lions park has? I am sure there is enough room. The old basket ball field (the new added to it) could be that, or it could be a soccer/football field too.

Something has to be done. I will be forwarding this post to city council and the local ward to see what can be done to improve the area and help flourish the community. I feel many more would share the same feelings as I am expressing. Would you want more parking spaces, or more room for play areas? I think the play areas would be allot better and beneficial.

Thanks for reading.

People throwing trash, junk, garbage, crap off of their balconies in toronto housing apartment buildings should be ashamed of themselves!

Why do people do this? Why don’t they think twice about littering? As hard as it is to write such a post, as much as it angers me to see this kind of laziness occurring in areas I live close to or visit/hang out at regularly, I wish it would stop. Don’t people even realise how much of a safety hazard it is? What about the terminal velocity/speed an object reaches when it drops from, say, a 10th floor balcony and hits a person or impacts the ground RIGHT NEXT TO THEM? It can cause an injury, fracture, even death! What if it hit somebody just walking by? What if it hit a pregnant mother? She could risk losing her baby!

I wish people would think twice before committing such an act that does violate the rules of the lease, because once they are caught, it goes on their file and eventually leads to EVICTION if it happens enough. I myself have been hit by water on a freezing cold day (I promptly called security), seen people toss trash/junk/garbage, toys, balls, food, peels from vegetables/fruit, a cell phone. I also saw somebody toss down a number of beer bottles, a fridge, television, fans, a mattress, couch, dresser, cabinet, a friggin GARBAGE CAN, bottles of water, FECES and diapers! I have to ask one thing to people… HOW FUCKING LAZY CAN YOU BE?!?!? There is a GARBAGE CAN for GARBAGE, a RECYCLE BIN for RECYCLING and a GARBAGE CHUTE to toss that trash from the can down. You DO NOT toss it off of the balcony!

I sure hope the Toronto Community Housing Corporation is listening, reading, and observing these kinds of complaints, even social media. I hope they are NOT ignoring it either. Doing so would prove that they really don’t care about preventing lawsuits, injuries, deaths and property damage caused by the act of dumping trash/throwing objects off high-rises can do once it makes impact with a person or vehicle.

 

Thank you for taking the time to read this. Feel free to share this with anybody who has concerns too, as it might end up encouraging them to monitor and catch whoever it is that is throwing their junk out of their units.

The news/media won’t cover the stabbing that occurred at jane and woolner on Saturday April 26 2014, so i’ll write a short post about it instead

So yeah, there was a stabbing at approximately midnight (12:00 am) on the date in title of this post. The story? there is not much to write about considering I didn’t have much time to talk to police (I was heading to dufferin and lawrence, not that uncommon at that time of night) due to where I was headed and didnt have much time to get to my destination either.

From what I saw, there was about 16-20 police cruisers, yellow police tape, and motorists/pedestrians/cyclists were asked to take a detour or alternative route. On foot/bike, you could walk through the park, hydro field. By car, you had to turn back and go north on rockcliffe to alliance and west to jane, or south on castleton to St. clair and east to jane.

My best guess about how long the investigation lasted, was from shortly after midnight (when the emergency crews arrived, same for police and fire departments), until shortly after 4:00 am. I don’t know if anyone was fatally shot or they were injured. The cause? Either rival gangs, drugs, someone having it out for somebody they hated for unknown reasons, money, somebody causing trouble (no really) or a dealing (of any kind) gone wrong. Nobody will know. I just wish more people would speak up and not live in fear of being killed/targeted. There is a reason why 222-TIPS exists… Use it for fuck’s sake! You could help catch who stabbed and almost killed the person!

Other than that, there is no need for a video to be made about this incident, as these things happen all over the city, neighborhoods, communities, regardless what time of day or night it is, at random or planned out. The media (ctv/citynews/cp24, cbc, global tv, chch, etc, etc.) and news print doesn’t help make things any easier to deal with, and it impacts the community and neighborhood’s reputation too, which is not what we want.

In other words, stabbings around here don’t seem to happen all that often, only once or twice a year, a great big relief from when it was the 1980’s to early 2000’s. It is much safer than what the media makes it out to be. In other words, if you don’t intend to look for trouble, it won’t find you. As a community, people think together. This is what we need, more programs and community action.

Thank you for reading.
Later edited to include what the media passively mentioned, replaced shooting with stabbing, minor changes made.

Despite the negativity, bad news.. The Jane and Woolner area is actually quite peaceful!

It is time to put all of the negativity, bad news and the past aside for once in our lives… Because the neighborhood called jane and woolner, is not all that bad. Sure in the past it was, I recall hearing shootings from across woolner park almost every day, or every second day, or week, depending on the number of conflicts, turf wars between gang members of any age (didn’t matter if you were 11 or older), drug deals gone wrong/bad, allot of people got killed before 2004.

Then the police started cracking down… When I say that, I mean it! Gang leaders got arrested, weapon/drug caches got confiscated, drug dealers busted, you name it. It eventually ended with a slow, steady and slow grinding halt by the time 2006 hit. Two years of action that turned the community into a peaceful place once again. In between 2006-2009, there was the odd shooting and robbery, including one drive-by shooting, but besides that, it has been peaceful since then.

As far as I am concerned, I haven’t heard of any more shootings, stabbings or violence on the streets since then. Only a few stabbings (broken liquor, beer bottles), one shooting happened in 190 woolner on the 15th floor during a small house party, that was resolved rather quickly with prompt action from paramedics and the police. The shooter likely did get away though, probably didn’t get caught.

It makes me feel allot better to be honest, for the community, the residents, and the youth, despite the chaos that happens in dense neighborhoods in tough times, with poverty and low income being a major thing and concern. I am thankful for the youth mentoring programs that are in place too, in order to keep them out of trouble if you know what I mean. We don’t need any youth having dangerous weapons murdering people. That just isn’t right at all.

Another thing I might add, is the sheer amount of false alarms. This is causing a major disturbance at 220, 230 and 190 woolner ave. People are pulling the fire alarms for fun and games, costing the superintendents, and landlords, allot of money via hefty fines. I wonder if that is going to stop soon, if cameras were put in place in the hallways looking towards the end of the hallways (where pull stations usually are), it would pretty much stop in it’s tracks and those caught doing it, would then either be charged, fined or imprisoned, or worse, evicted.

Looking forward, there has been a very nice wall mural that was painted on the mini plaza building on the south-east side of jane and woolner, giving it more of a beautification. Woolner Park got enhanced with a renewed and extra basketball court, besides a brand new playground for the youngsters to enjoy too, same for 190 woolner.

The rest of the buildings, they haven’t even had a playscape done in years. 777 and 767 jane street has a rusted swing set, slide in dire need of repair, or complete replacement altogether. 230, 220, 210 woolner ave doesn’t even have a single playscape either, not even swings. I think that needs to change, even if it’s to be a smaller set, let it be done. It would add more life to the community to be honest.

I recall the stairway that I used to take going down to the old pathway beyond the school as a teenager, to walk all the way to jane street. I used to take walks around that way all the time, after crossing woolner park, crossing woolner ave, walking through 190 woolner’s property to the gated fenced entrance of course. I just wish they didn’t take out the stairway just because of the number of people trespassing on the property, or hanging out behind the fence while drinking, dealing drugs, or anything else that broke the law/caused disturbances.

It was a shortcut to school, baseball and soccer/football fields. The gated entrance could have been enhanced with a fob access system just like the building entrances are, but the owners of Toronto community housing corporation didn’t seem to give it much thought at all. Oh well, there isn’t much we can do about that.

Some more history in case people didn’t know about this little tidbit, there was a tunnel connecting ALL FIVE buildings together via the sub/basement level of each buildings underground parking space. It went from 190 woolner, all the way to 230 woolner ave. It was hard to imagine a walkway was even existing, but it was. The shameful part was, it wasn’t long before it was closed off and quite possibly filled in (or could it have been just walled off instead? So many questions…) because of people using it to get away from the police when they were called. It was vary much humorous to think about it, almost like a game of cat and mouse.

However, let’s think about that for a moment. What if they didn’t close it down and instead, enhanced the walkway with better lighting, security cameras and actually extended it all the way to Rockcliffe middle school to the south-west (behind woolner, next to rockcliffe), and north to 801 Jane street? Now that would have been much better to be honest. Communities would be linked easily and (thinking for the future) there would have been a link to the Jane LRT station right of way too, as an underpass. But sadly, yes, it was closed down in the late 70’s or early 80’s (around or after Metro toronto housing agency, now toronto community housing corporation, sold all but one of the buildings to independent owners/companies), never to be heard of again or walked through again. But there are still sections that once housed the entrances of it, but they’re either filled in or paved over entirely as of late 2000.

So basically that’s my post. Thank you for taking the time to read it. Do share this via any social networks, e-mail, instant messaging, link to it on websites, share it with the media (if they even give a crap) and include it with anything you might also write/blog about that relates the area. If you have anything to contribute to this publication, please do feel free to leave a comment, and I will be sure to include it and will send you a “thank you” reply to your e-mail address (if it’s not fake) so you will know it did get included.

Cheers.
