Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.

Expert:  Debra replied 2 months ago.

I am sorry to hear this.

Are you saying you are concerned about your own property value and for your safety because it will be a shelter for men?

Did the document set out your next step?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
The city document ie an application for an official plan amendment, rezoning and site plan, asks for my comments by tomorrow.
I find it interesting that some of my neighbours (I live in a high rise) did not receive this information.
The document states that if I wish to notified of the decision of Council on the proposed zoning by-law I must make a written request. I do not want the result, I want to avoid the zoning changePS my office e-mail is***@******.***

This is supposed to be free legal advice, how come I am receiving amounts to be charged

This is not a free site. I am sorry if you were left with that impression.

Do you want to speak to customer service about what you are being charged as I don't know what that is as I don't work for the site?

Please contact them. I don't work for the site so I don't have any dealings with them myself.
