Alleviate Flooding in York South - Weston

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

Residents of York South - Weston have experienced decades of flooding and environmental degradation. They have lost cars, family heirlooms and have seen their basements destroyed, many more than once.

The financial hardship has been tremendous but the emotional turmoil, chaos and continuous uncertainty is a burden many bear in silence.

Long time residents have endured decades of civic neglect. A history of broken promises, and stacks of dusty studies recommending unfunded interventions that have been ignored.. Each time a storm passes through, residents fear that once again their streets and basements will become filled with sewage. They are not safe in their own homes.

Claims for relief to the city have been denied and some residents can’t even obtain home insurance. Enough is Enough!

Join us for the Black Creek Alliance - Community Awareness March, on Sunday August 16th, 2020.  Stand in support of our neighbours, and demand that all levels of government work together to build the infrastructure required to stop the disastrous, life threatening flooding of Black Creek!

Meet in the parking lot of York Community Recreation Centre, at 11am on Sunday August 16th, as we walk down along Black Creek across Weston Rd and along Alliance Ave ending at Jane Park Plaza.

There will be stops at points of interest along the way.

Social distancing, masks, and hand sanitizer will be in practice. Comfortable shoes, hat and sunscreen recommended. Noise makers, drumming, posters and senseless acts of beauty encouraged!
