After a year of public consultations, the City of Toronto’s Municipal Standards and Licensing Division (MS&L) will propose an amendment to the section of the Toronto Municipal Code that governs dogs and dog behaviour.
The Toronto Police Service has arrested and charged 55-year-old Jeffrey Dewey of Toronto with sexual assault and impersonating a peace officer in connection with a Sept. 11 incident. At 12:06 p.m., a 36-year-old woman was in the College Street and Spadina Avenue area, when a man approached her and showed an object resembling a police badge, before proceeding to sexually assault her. It is alleged that Dewey may have assaulted other women, and police are asking them to come forward. Dewey has two distinctive tattoos: a mermaid on his left bicep, and a large multi-coloured star with a human eye in the middle of his right forearm. If you have further information, please contact the police at 416-808-5200, or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-8477.
Crime in 14 Division for August and September was less than the previous year across six major categories, reported Detective Sergeant Brian Kelly at a Community Police Liaison Committee meeting on Sept. 20. The division’s boundaries are Spadina Avenue, Bathurst, Front, and Adelaide streets.
Getting the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) ratified is a big win for Canada, and an equally big win for Chrystia Freeland, not just our Member of Parliament but also our nation’s Minister of International Trade.
