Could it (should it) become an election issue this October? Has the wall of concrete towers only served to make the problem louder and the pollution more contained? A number of residents are taking up the cause to see if their collective voice will bring any positive change to life at the Quay ...with trains.
This issue has had a nearly 2 decade history with the QCB and the City - and yet it is clearly still an issue of concern to those who live at the Quay.
Here is a chance to have your voice added to the conversation. PLEASE BE POLITE and ensure your comments advance the discussion forward. If you are going to repeat twenty year old comments such as 'The trains were here first ' or 'You shouldn't have moved into the area if you knew there were trains' - please save your voice - these are old comments and do not serve to see if there is a real way forward to this considerable and real problem.

Understanding pet ownership is a sensitive discussion, a resident has submitted some thoughts on how to better ascertain whether a dog – big or small – would make for a good ‘resident’ of a building. Rather then base a pet’s acceptance on their size alone, perhaps strata’s should be looking at their behaviour and training as a more accurate indicator.
As this resident points out, we don’t stop people from buying condos at the Quay because of their weight, why then is this the litmus test for dogs? We thought it might be a good discussion to have as the Quay is a well known dog-lovers environment. You can voice your thoughts (politely please) via facebook here or visit our blog spot to have your say here.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO BE POLITE - WE ALL LOVE OUR DOGS SO SHOW SOME OF THAT LOVE IN THIS DISCUSSION - THANKS
Here is the resident’s ‘Letter to the Editor’ to open the discussion CLICK HERE

ARE YOU PREPARED FOR A FLOOD?Do you live at the Quay in a ground floor suite? Do you have your car parked in an underground space? Do you have storage units in a sub-basement in your complex? Have you made plans to stay elswhere should Quayside Drive flood preventing access to your condo? Do you have an emergency kit or plan should the waters rise to flood level?
These are the questions the QCB wants you to ask yourself during this HIGH WATER THREAT. While we have not witnessed severe flooding in the Quay area in the recent past, there is no stopping mother nature if she wishes to remind us that she is in control.
So what are you planning to do? Share your 'preparedness' with your fellow Quaysiders. Stay safe!
PS: With the water level at the same level as the Boardwalk, a wave from a tug boat can easily wipe away a tiny pet in a flash. Please stay off the wooden Boardwalk until further notice from the City.

The popular and well-attended AGM for the QCB is February 7th, 2018. One aspect that makes the QCB AGM a draw, is their ability to attract entertaining Guest Speakers who offer commentary on current and relevant topics that affect the Quayside community.
More bus shelters? Rail connection between Queensborough Ferry Dock to the Casino? The elections coming this Fall? Fibre Optic update? Quayside Drive Rail crossing completion? Flooding? Boardwalk repairs? ....the topics are seemingly endless.
Are there any issues you would want covered? Are there any speaker who you think would like to speak and be well received? It is an election year, would you like to hear anything on this issue?
There is time to the QCB to engage speakers that you would like to see - so have your say.
Please put your comments here so we can all share them or Email us at email@example.com / SUBJECT AGM 2018.
