Crossing Guard for Weston Memorial Junior Public School
Dear Chief Blair, We the parents of Weston Memorial Junior Public School request that you provide a crossing guard at the corner of Queens Dr. and Pine St. The ongoing construction on Weston Rd. and resulting gridlock has caused rush hour motorists to bypass Weston Rd. by using Pine St. as a thoroughfare to and from Lawrence Ave. Most of the children attending Weston Memorial have to cross Pine St. when walking to and from school. Speeding, time-stressed motorists as well as heavy congestion are making this crossing very dangerous. Go Transit estimates that the construction in the area will continue for at least an additional 15 months. Therefore, in order to secure the safety of our children, please expedite this request and provide a crossing guard at Queens Dr. and Pine St.
