I join all Londoners in praising the efforts of our brave first responders who have risked their own safety in the service of others. My thoughts are with them, and their loved ones. Words cannot properly express our gratitude and admiration.

This is an evolving situation and I won’t tweet rumours. People are really coming together. One woman was walking around, offering people water. Others have brought chairs for people to sit in. LTC buses are here for people who want to go inside. I’m at Woodman / Dundas.

It’s quite an incredible scene here in Old East Village. Police say a car drove into a home and caused an explosion. Neighbours say other homes have since exploded, possibly as many as five.

Visible flames appear to have died down a bit, but goodness knows what it’s like on the ground. Still a huge plume of smoke above OEV.

Last photo for me, smoke is drifting towards downtown and has a horrible taste in my mouth. The plume is visible without much zoom on a photo and easy to distinguish to the eye from clouds. stay safe everyone, and ideally indoors.

Our team found this great fairy house while canvassing! They weren’t home, but we left them some lit about the plan to retrofit existing buildings (or trees?) for energy efficiency to tackle climate change & save families $900 or more every year 🙂
