    Early morning surprises for Torontonians as a propane depot explodes…

    “My whole house shook. The front door came off and I saw fire,” said Shelby Degan, who lives less than a block away from the depot.

      What disgusted me was that city councillor Shelley Carroll, “acting Deputy Mayor” on tv blamed this on the homeowners who bought homes “that encroached on an industrial area”.

      While the industrial area was there first with WWII industries and later with places like the Tesky Construction cement loading location, those homes have been there for probably 5 decades while Sunrise Propane maybe one decade.

      Why does the city permit dangerous stuff like this to be ADDED to a location right across the street from a residential area?

      And for Councillor Carroll to blame the residents is nothing short of absolutely disgusting.

      It’s no wonder so many people have lost any respect for politicians.
