Noise Pollution at Canyon Apartments

About

I am a concerned tenant of 25 Canyon Avenue, who will reach out on your behalf to Greenwin Property Management, the Local MP and Landlord and Tenant Board to get help. I will fight for our right to live in a safe, comfortable environment.

I have already met some of you by knocking on your door. Thank you for the very positive response, and thank you for your support. If you already signed a paper version of this petition, and would like to sign electronically, please indicate so in comments, so that I do not count your name twice.

Your voice counts.

 

Please do leave additional comments about this petition, your experience with noise in your apartment or any other issues that you feel are pertinent.

Thank you.

Petition Text:

"We, the undersigned residents of 25 and 15 Canyon Avenue, Toronto, ON, M3H 4Y1, oppose the unsafe and debilitating levels of noise pollution which are currently accompanying Balcony Repairs and Brick Restoration work, which is carried out by K.I.B Building Restoration at our building.

We believe that the noise levels are harmful and the dangers of the project outweigh the benefits to the residents. In addition to causing months of construction disruptions, dust and dirt pollution, the noise levels, which are very high and non-stop from 8:30am to 6pm on business days, impede the daily activities of everyone who remains in the building during the daytime, as well as they are reducing the quaility of life now and for some, may reduce for years to come.

Noise pollution is dangerous. Prolonged exposure may cause cardiovascular problems, hearing loss, tinnitus, sleep disturbances, changes in blood pressure, and stress levels. It is especially dangerious to sick people, children and seniors who are more likely to be exposed to it during the hours of repairs."

    3 years ago Comments: I think this petition should be a "Fire Laurie Chaffe" petition. As the Superintendent of 15 Canyon, she is far from "super" and constantly displays a high level of incompetence and ineptitude. I am just as confident in my dealings with her as I am in taking that "death trap" of an elevator we have. So, let's change this petition now from the noise that made that those unsafe balconies (sides aren't installed correclty - shouldn't shake at all!) and let's initiate some change and install a good "Super".

    4 years ago Comments: Thank you very much for your time and efforts on behalf of all us, tenants. We live in our apartments now only 11 hours from 24. But we pay for all time monthly. It's not fair. We lose our health every day in favour of the buidings "management'. It's terrible! Mr. Carboni should try to be in the apartment when work is doing! Every day after work we go to our son's home, not to our apartment, up to 6pm. How long it will be???? How much and when the building management will pay us for all these inconveniences that we have from November 2009???

    4 years ago Comments: We are living in the hell from the October 2009, when the window replacements began in our 15 Canyon Ave. building. Unacceptible noise, cement dust all time in the apartment, closed balkonies that limited circulation of the fresh air in the old building-apartment are the causes of the serious health problems for us, me and my husband. I was hospitalized on December 23/10 with the heart problem. Next day, X-Mass evening, the Management allowed "balkony repairs people" worked from 8am up to 4.30pm. The noise was absolutely terrible - earplugs didn't help. Building Management disrespects our rights and we'll fight back to have safe, clean and respectful environment.
