Woodbine and dating with a cause
To complete the bikeway network east of Woodbine Avenue, a connecting contra-flow bike lane will also be installed on Corley Avenue (between Woodbine Avenue and Brookside Drive) and sharrows will be installed in the westbound direction of traffic flow on Norway Avenue (between Woodbine Avenue and Elmer Avenue).These cycling facilities do provide important cycling network connections for east-end neighbourhoods, encourage more people to cycle, and improve the safety and comfort of all road users.Toronto Animal Services removed the deceased wildlife and is working on determining the cause of death.Tests will take about two weeks to complete, the City said in a news release.
The death of 30 ducks and one heron at Woodbine Beach Sunday morning has the City of Toronto warning dog owners to keep their pets leashed in the area until the cause of death is determined.
Staff continue to monitor and address operational and safety issues and concerns received from residents. We want to thank everyone who has provided their input on the project.
We hear a range of perspectives about the bike lanes.
"All dog owners should ensure that dogs are leashed in Woodbine Park, including in the off-leash area, until the cause of death has been determined," the City said.
"Dog owners are encouraged to contact their veterinarian if their dog was in the park on Sunday and is experiencing signs of illness." Joanne Ingrassia, a volunteer with the Toronto Wildlife Centre, spent Sunday at Woodbine Beach, searching for surviving ducks to rescue.
