The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) has just filed a $90 million lawsuit against the City and Toronto Fire Services (TFS) over a massive fire that destroyed York Memorial Collegiate Institute in 2019.
The legal document claim that the fire department failed to do their job properly upon initial arrival, which resulted in the fire rekindling on May 7. TDSB also argues that Fire Chief Matthew Pegg attempted to sway them into believing the fires were separate.
"While the TDSB and our insurers had hoped to resolve this matter outside of court, we were left with no choice but to take legal action," stated the school.
In a press conference, Pegg commented on the lawsuit, saying, "I became aware of the statement of claim being filed today, a copy of one of the media articles was sent to me by a colleague. It is now in the hands of city legal, as is our process at any point of time for any legal action, and that's where it's best suited. It's a matter that will be managed by legal services and ultimately in the courts."
"I'm going to say it again, and again and again, because it makes me so happy," said Crombie at a press conference. "We will all be eligible for the vaccine as of 8 a.m. tomorrow."
Residents can book their vaccine by visiting Peel region's vaccine website and clicking "book appointment" after 8 a.m., Crombie said. The mayor also highlights the importance of the change by explaining that some of Peel's non-hot-spot areas still had higher case counts and hospitalization rates than other designated hot spots in the province.
Currently, all adults over the age of 18 who live in an Ontario hot spot are eligible to book a vaccine via the provincial booking system.
