Humber Valley residents fight condo plans with robo-calls

A group of residents in the Humber Valley are determined to keep a proposed condo project out of their neighbourhood.

The Humber Valley Village Residents Association is using automated calls to drum up support for their cause.

The computer voice, which will call about 8,000 homes in the area, tells residents to attend a public meeting with the City on September 11th at Martingrove Collegiate to voice their concerns over the plans.

Developers want to build 700-unit condo complex near Royal York Avenue and Dundas Street.

It would be built over the Humbertown Plaza shopping mall.

The Residents Association is concerned about potential traffic congestion if the project goes ahead as-planned.
