New signs for reduced speed limits will not be posted on residential streets in East York until early next year, according to Toronto and East York Transportation Services. The vote to reduce speed limits was approved unanimously by the Toronto and East York community council in early September. The speed limit on some residential roads in East York officially went from 40 kilometres per hour to 30, a week ago. Toronto and East York Transportation Services supervisor Sandra Burk said the delay in posting the signs is because the process is complex.
It’s Monday night and Mary-Margaret McMahon is busy greeting guests. Some she knows by name, the rest receive warm introductions as they filter in. While everyone settles down she offers coffee and cookies. Despite having all the appearances of an intimate gathering, this is no party.
