There are many different types of wildlife that live near or in urban centres and quite often we don’t even notice them. If you do see them or the evidence that they have been around you might want to remember to try not to leave your garbage or pet food outside overnight, as this is their peak foraging hours. Other tips can be found at

If you see any sick or injured animals, please call 905-574-3433 and let our Animal Services Officers know.

It has come to my attention that there is an application for a 6 storey building submitted for the property on the South West corner of Binhaven Blvd. and Binbrook Road, Binbrook Village.

As you know I have always opposed any application that exceeds the 3 story limit. After extensive research in the archives it was discovered that in 2007 (prior to my becoming Councillor), this property received approval for “special permission” to exceed the 3 storey height limit and Council approved it in 2007.

I have approached both our legal staff and planning staff to see if we can have the 6 storey approval reduced back to the 3 storey maximum height restriction as per the secondary plan, but unfortunately, we cannot legally reverse the “special permission” without the property owner’s approval.

The Winona Community Centre will offer 8 individual weeks of summer camp this summer starting the week of July 3rd, 2018. There are 2 different programs being offer “Camp Kidaca Lite” and “Camp Kidaca”.
Camp Kidaca Lite is our most popular day camp program geared to 4 and 5 year olds without a trip. This program is designed to introduce campers to a full-day camp experience with a lower staff to camper ratio (1:8). Preschool campers will participate in age appropriate activities, with a focus on cooperative games, friendships, gross motor skill development, songs, circle time, stories and crafts and outdoor water play (sprinklers and wading pools).
Camp Kidaca for kids 6-11 years of age is the most popular day camp program for this age group. Campers will participate in a variety of age appropriate activities, including daily swimming, active games, sports, songs, cooperative games, crafts, creative time, songs, special events and a weekly trip. Staff to camper ratio is 1:10. This camp includes a trip by school bus to a local attraction. Trip locations: Wild Water Works, African Lion Safari.
If you are interested in these or any other camps, don’t wait long as they fill out quickly. Call 905-546-3747 or email

We are advised that the really wet conditions a couple of weeks ago prevented staff from doing a lot of their spring grass cutting and then it was followed by very hot sunny conditions which made for the perfect growing weather. In fact the grass grew faster than normal and our staff have been hard pressed to catch up.
The priority for grass cutting as been the sports fields so that our programmed sports can continue without disruption. Now they are diligently working to complete all the grass cutting in our local parks.

We would like to thank all the residents for their patience and staff will continue to work to keep our parks and sports fields cut nicely.

Councillor Brenda Johnson brought a motion to Council today asking that the splash pads be opened now and also stay open longer in September if the warm weather continues. We are advised that both Binbrook & Winona Splash Pads opened early this afternoon and are ready to enjoy !!

This motion also addresses futures years by requesting that the splash pads be opened for the May long weekend depending on the weather.

This is great news as Councillor Brenda Johnson requested this early opening in this years budget, but council didn’t support it at the time. But Brenda was persistent in her efforts and finally won the battle with unanimous support from her Council.

City crews will begin activating spray pads this afternoon. It will take a few days to get all locations turned on.
