re: Steelcare truck. I followed it from Birch and Burlington St to the west end of downtown. I don't know where it's trip originated - further east along Burlington St is my guess. Whether the location was the 403 or the Steelcare plant on Aberdeen, those trucks should be using the QEW/403 to get there, not downtown neighbourhoods.

Debate is not a NIMBY issue, but the feeling of a dark cloud over the Dundurn area, wondering when fate will have its day and with whom?

It was almost me a few years ago while walking to The Staircase. A transport headed south flipped over and landed on the sidewalk 100 feet in front of me. It was pretty scary. Had I been a minute earlier, I'd have been squished. 3 months later, I'm walking along York to Dundurn Park when all hell breaks loose behind me. I turn around to see a truck loaded with steel coils flipped onto the sidewalk where I had just walked 30 seconds earlier. Again, just dodged fate by mere seconds. My neighbour walking with their small son on York also had the same thing happen, half a block ahead of them. And who knows how many other stories are out there that never get told. Someone WILL get killed someday, and the city WILL be sued and held liable due to blatant negligence in the face of imminent danger, despite being warned hundreds of times by local residents.
