Like all Carlington residents, the CCA was extremely troubled by the news of another shooting outside the Suya Spot restaurant this morning — this time resulting in a homicide. There is a long and frustrating history of violence at this establishment and the community has been active before in trying to minimize risk to neighbours in the area. At this point, it is clear that the owners and landlord don’t have either the capacity or willingness to make critical changes — and it is important for the community to speak out again.

Councillor Riley Brockington has invited residents to share their concerns with his office, and the CCA will follow up with more detailed information and options once we have conferred with key stakeholders.

In the meantime, don’t hesitate to contact us directly, if you have any comments or questions, at (president@carlingtoncommunity.org).

Stay safe, Carlington…
