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 http://www.toronto.ca/involved/projects.htm
