Letter arrived from city clerk's office dated July 5, 2006 on the
subject of: Policy and Finance Committee Report 5, Clause 2
Provincial Ombudsman's Report on the Municipal Property
Assessment Corporation (MPAC) ... City file ref.: 06-PF#5(2)
-- My notes: This letter was sent to All Interested Parties,
which includes me because of my presentation on 20.June 2006
on the subject of MPAC reform. Toronto city council endorsed and
broadened the 22 recommended items in the Ontario Ombudsman's
report of March 28, 2006.
I am pleased that city council is supporting the stand on the
issues that I and others have been complaining about.
City council has asked staff to report to the September 2006
meeting of the policy and finance committee on two issues of
special interest to me, I.E.,:
...2 (i) on the effectiveness of measures MPAC has taken
to meet the concerns expressed by the residents of the City
of Toronto..., and
...2 (ii) on the most effective and appropriate means to
gather ongoing citizen input on issues concerning MPAC...

I went to celebrate Volunteer Week
at St. Michael's Hospital here in
Toronto. After the multi-faith service in the chapel, the
hospital hosted the volunteers to a reception in the "Marketeria"
6th. floor cafeteria.
I posed for this caricature
portrait with my volunteer partner Norma Marshall. We volunteer
every Wednesday afternoon in the hospital's
la Carte program.
The artist who drew this caricature
was Mayan Canadian Héctor Valladares-Aguilera.

We are back in the minus Celsius
range! I have been running on 3 kW since 26.March 2004 16:15
of kW per Celsius degree difference between the inside and
outside air is now 3 kW divided by (14°C inside temperature
minus (minus 7°C outside air temperature)), which equals in
value to 0.1428 kW per C°. I predicted this from the graph
of the function.
Here is the
temperature graphical image from the weather office of
Environment Canada, which I have modified slightly.

This morning I hand delivered my
protective appeal to the Assessment Review Board (ARB) located at
250 Yonge Street, 30th. floor Hearing Rooms.

Wow! Yesterday we had a 21 hour
cold snap. It began with a temperature of minus 2°C on 21.March
2004 at 12:00.
The outside air temperature then
dropped to minus 10°C for four hours beginning on 22.March 2004
of this cold snap on the temperature inside my house. Here is
data of the temperatures for today.
services workers came back this morning and completed yesterday's
work of removing the tree. Here is picture of the

Tree Services arrived on my street
to begin cutting down the tree that lost a large branch during
the last big wind storm on 15.Oct.2003. The storm broke off the
branch and tossed it onto the street, narrowly missing puncturing
the roof of my neighbour's house. But the branch did not miss her
car. The remaining parts of the tree looked like they might
threaten to fall on to the roof of the house.
Here is the
picture of the workers cutting
the tree down. I think I will write up a story on the subject
of trees. The tree story might form a section in my ephemera
in the city page.

Weather is +6°C.
It is a
bright but overcast afternoon, with an outside air temperature
being a balmy plus six degrees Celsius.
The last traces of snow have almost disappeared from my view out
of the second floor north window of my
home. This is the picture of my street
where I live.
family has been busy chewing away at the fascia board and roofing
material of the front porch roof. Here is the picture
of the damage from the raccoons. This next
picture I took with my Vivitar 55 mini camera of the heavy
raccoon tracks on the porch roof when the snow was heavy
everywhere in February 2004. I must research the Toronto Humane
Society methods on how to evict this raccoon family of three.
I am still
working on my function of (kW/C°).
This shows how the temperature inside my house changes with the
changes in outside air temperature. I just uploaded the graph
of this to my GeoCities web site.
This function is a graph of:
Temperature - Outside Air Temperature) = kW/f(kW/C°).
The kW is the
rate of heat input to my house. I have been measuring this kW by
reading the electricity meter of the Toronto
Hydro-Electric System Limited. I converted these
kilo-Watt.hour readings to the kilo-Watt rate.

I just completed writing my Request
for Reconsideration to the Municipal Property Assessment
Corporation (MPAC) of Property Assessment Notice 2003. I wrote
the Request for Reconsideration with MS Word to create a .doc
file. I then converted it to a pdf using the pdf converter in my
OpenOffice.org version 1.1.0.
I will hand deliver my request to
MPAC later on this morning around 10:00 EST.
