We are excited to introduce our new and improved website, which just launched this week! Special thank you to a long-time friend of the MRA, Mary Bella of Maestra Web Design for graciously donating her services for our new site. Take a peek here:

Membership Campaign

The MRA has started a membership campaign to try and get new members to the group. You may see more information about our group on billboards, in the community or in your neighbourhood. If you see us, please come by and say hi to see everything we have been up to. 

If you like what we’re doing, we encourage you to sign up for our membership, and please tell your neighbours about us! And if you have 2 minutes, we would love it if you could complete our community survey.

ML Ready Mix

Delays to the eviction of ML Ready Mix from its current location at 29 Judson Street continue after an emergency injunction was filed by the company on July 5th despite a City Council motion to cease operation by June 30th.  The MRA has issued multiple letters in the past months calling for action. 

On September 28, 2022, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice judge published a ruling on the lease between the City of Toronto and ML Ready Mix at 29 Judson St. As part of the judgement:
·         ML Ready Mix is required to vacate the premises no later than November 30, 2022
·         There will be no further extensions of this timeline
·         ML Ready Mix must disclose the progress of their construction at 541 Commissioners Rd. in writing every 21 days and continue to comply with all relevant legislation for the operation of their concrete batching at 29 Judson St.
·         The lease terms obligate ML Ready Mix to pay double their rent during the period in which they are past the lease’s expiry
