Whats happening in and around Mount Dennis – April 8

Correction to Weston King Neighbour Centre AGM  –  Should have been  Tuesday April 19 – sorry for the inconvenience.

Film Shoot In Mount Dennis

 Councillor Nunziata’s office was approached by a film director and producer who are interested in filming a movie in Mount Dennis and need help finding a house that they would be able to use. The setting of the movie would actually be Mount Dennis in Toronto (they wouldn’t be changing the street names or anything to pretend it is actually another City).
