Moving Forward (with Telling the Truth)

On Sunday, September 16, 2018, Trinity Anglican Church launched its new Bank Street mural—Telling the Truth: A shared journey toward Reconciliation Healing and Hope.

Sunday’s celebrations began with a traditional indigenous welcome song at Trinity’s weekly 10 o’clock service.

Back to School

Back to School

As young people head back to school this fall, a few changes have been made relating to traffic that will make their journey a little safer.

You'll notice that a second adult crossing guard has been added mornings and afternoons at Bank Street & Sunnyside Avenue. A request placed by the Councillor’s Office was reviewed last spring and City staff responsible for School Zone Traffic agreed that the intersection warranted a second crossing guard. Ian and Andrew have been hired to fill these positions.  Please take extra care at this very busy intersection.
