As many commentators have pointed out on this blog over the years, is the idea that the Junction area at Keele St. and Dundas St. West around the south-east corner is “broken”.
Commonly reports about the social problems we do experience in this area. Crime, drugs . Probably resulting from the notably high levels of economic inequality, in the immediate few blocks surrounding this corner. The great amount of travel though traffic, some making difficult or unsafe turns is also part of the problem.
The gap between intention and action, and between denial and knowledge from just about every organized body, community groups, government, business organizations, causes this corner to keep its notorious nature.
Solutions will be difficult to inter, as the intersection sits of the dividing line between two city wards, two resident associations, but it does sit right in the Junction business association area allowing for single interest from one entity if a workup plan to solve the intersections problems is ever put forward.
