Basement Flooding in Leslieville

Dear Friends,

Climate change is affecting us locally as well.

In July 2008, Leslieville and the Beaches experienced the effects of a freak rain storm. The sewers were overloaded and many basements were flooded.  I saw and heard of the great difficulties many residents experienced and advocated for an Environmental Assessment across the affected areas. This EA – Study Area 32 - was initiated in August 2009 with the initial Open House held in the fall of 2010. For more information please visit

Details will be updated on city website:
Now the second Public Open Houses will inform you of the options being proposed to prevent future basement and surface area flooding that should stand up to a 100 year storm. These two meetings are scheduled for:

Monday, June 13, 2011 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Jimmie Simpson Community Centre Gymnasium

870 Queen St. East at Logan Avenue

Thursday, June 16, 2011 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Mennonite New Life Centre of Toronto

1774 Queen St. East at Kingston Road

You will have an opportunity to hear a presentation, view displays, speak one-on-one with project staff and respond directly to the recommended solutions. Your comments are very important and will form a part of the EA.

If you are unable to attend but would like more information please contact:
