Hi all,
It’s has been a long time coming (see my post from December, below) …  but  I can now report that there’s been substantial progress on Tony’s bench, the upshot of which is that I won’t be surprised to see the bench installed before the end of July. Also, everyone involved should hear that, instead of the location in front of Mabel’s, the bench will be installed about 30 feet north, in front of Timothy’s at the SE corner of Roncesvalles and Grenadier; benches aren’t permitted in areas of interlocking brick; only concrete sidewalks will do.

Thanks to donors for your quasi-infinite patience. And, of course, thanks to Pat Dixon for her infinite efforts.

I will keep you apprised.


A much-delayed update about the much-delayed bench to commemorate Tony

November 27, 2012

Hello all,
Here’s the latest from Pat Dixon, who has taken responsibility for getting Tony’s bench installed:

I’ve contacted Gord Perks’s [local city councillor’s office, the “street furnishings” department with the city, and the commemorative bench people.  I’ve also received approval personally from Mabel’s Bakery to locate the bench in front of the store.   I’m just hoping to get (in writing) a confirmation that there won’t be a problem with our preferred bench or the installation, before I go ahead and take steps toward ordering the bench, inscription, and installation.


More when I know more.   ps
