About "Davisville Village" Resident, Richard Malik:

Richard was born in Burlington Ontario in October of 1973. Shortly after turning four years old Richard received a diagnosis of autism. During his early years Richard was the recipient of enriched programming from many different sources. These interventions greatly enhanced the development of both his verbal communication and social skills.

Initially Richard took instruction in art with a group under the tutelage of Isabel Page. Later he took private lessons with her. For several years before Christmas with Isabel's guidance Richard would produce many personal hand-painted cards which he delighted in sending to family and friends.

Richard's new original paintings, new greeting cards and seasonal cards can be viewed and ordered at

Town Hall on Toronto's Transit Future hosted by Councillor Josh Matlow - Oct 22nd

NOTICE: Transit Town Hall Meeting
Monday October 22nd, 2012
hosted by Councillor Josh Matlow

7pm to 9pm
North Toronto Memorial Community Centre
200 Eglinton Avenue West

Topics:  The Eglinton Crosstown LRT, Yonge subway overcrowding, new transit funding tools, a Downtown Relief Line and more

"Transit continues to be a top priority for Torontonians. The City of Toronto's Executive Committee discussed potential revenue tools to pay for new transit this week while governance issues between Metrolinx and the TTC regarding the operation of the Eglinton Crosstown have been an ongoing topic of discussion in the news. I've been advocating, for a long time, to have a realistic conversation about, and see action on, transit funding and for a Downtown Relief Subway Line (DRL) to be our next priority. A DRL would assist in decreasing overcrowding on our existing subway lines and better connect our city's neighbourhoods.

Please join me at my upcoming Transit Town Hall to learn more about these issues, and an update on the Eglinton Crosstown LRT."  ~Josh

Strong Average Price Growth in September

TORONTO, October 3, 2012 – Greater Toronto Area (GTA) REALTORS® reported 5,879 transactions through the TorontoMLS system in September 2012. The average selling price for these transactions was $503,662, representing an increase of more than 8.5 per cent compared to last year.

The number of transactions was down by 21 per cent in comparison to September 2011. However, it is important to note that there were two fewer working days in September 2012 compared to September 2011. The majority of transactions are entered on working days. On a per working day basis, sales were down by 12.5 per cent year-over-year.

“While sales have been lower due to stricter mortgage lending guidelines, we continue to see substantial competition between buyers. The months of inventory trend remains low from a historic perspective, which explains the strong price increases we are experiencing,” said Toronto Real Estate Board President Ann Hannah.

September average selling prices were up compared to last year for all major home types. Price growth was strongest in the City of Toronto, including condominium apartments with eight per cent year-over-year growth. All benchmark home types included in the MLS® Home Price Index (MLS® HPI) experienced year-over-year price increases, with substantially stronger increases for low-rise home types.

“Barring a major change to the consensus economic outlook, home price growth is expected to continue through 2013. Based on inventory levels, price growth will be strongest for low-rise home types, including single-detached and semi-detached houses and town homes,” said TREB’s Senior Manager of Market Analysis, Jason Mercer.
