You can also report it to the Lakeshore Village BIA and we can work with building/store owners to help get it repaired.

If you see Graffiti Vandalism in progress, call 911. If you believe that graffiti is gang or hate related, contact the police immediately at (416) 808-2222. Do not remove gang or hate graffiti without first contacting the police.

Unfortunately an other wave of Graffiti vandalism happen again in Lakeshore Village at 8 street The new nicely refurbished building operated by #GOODLAKE was the most heavily hit.  

2976 Lake Shore Boulevard West

Toronto, ON M8V 1J9

To my dismay I offered to the owner of GOODLAKE  free Graffiti removal as long as they provide the paint. The reply was that they didn't mind and it wasnt a priority for them.  I encourage any member to contact them  and show your concern about the look of our neighborhood.  
if we keep removing the graffiti as soon as they are done  we can discourage the vandalism.

Ryan and Taking Back Lakeshore:

I want to thank you, Ryan, for your kind words late 2010 regarding some of the initiatives we are "growing" to support community safety in our neighbourhoods. One step at a time, we decided to launch our blog, Lakeshoresafe as a first step (with more to come).

Thank you Ryan for your encouragement, help and shining example. I hope we can meet again.

Note on blog below:

New Toronto is an established mature neighbourhood with a mix of long time residents and new families.

Our proximity to the lake, Prince Of Wales Park, Humber College and the numerous ‘windows to the lake’ make our neighbourhood a unique and lovely place to live.

READ THE BLOG (see below) created by your neighbours.  It includes safety tips, contacts and keeps you informed.

Let’s keep our neighbourhood safe and secure. 

Watch out for your neighbour as you would like them to watch out for you

KEEP SAFE – STAY SECURE and report any suspicious activity immediately to the police.

Take care,

Ryan - please stop in for a chat before you leave the neighbourhood. Very sad to hear this, but I cannot blame you - you have to do what is best for you and your family. Perhaps, this might be a wake up call to all those who doubt the veracity of all our complaints. Happy holidays to you and yours.

Strangely, I expected with the new police college in place, I would be seeing patrols of student police. Has anyone seen increased police activity? Is there a way we can petition them to have more foot patrols throughout the neighbourhood?

Wow. I know the Rabba people - they seem pretty nice. Good to know they and the banks acted so fast. The machine had to have been swapped out. Could not figure out how else this would happen....We get our bank card shut down about once every 3 months from using it at a "suspect" place. The banks are very good at this and we haven't had any losses. Still, makes you wonder...

At the Café, we make sure we do this in front of you and have a very strong Moneris system (RBC and BMO) behind us. It's when you get those "no-name" cheaper type systems that you can run into lots of problems. Be on the lookout-any establishment that uses a bank debit system, like Moneris or TD is a bit more legit. Happy Canada Day everyone.
