New fence on much of Lake Leaside but water still deep

It has been a week now since word was released that new fencing would be placed along much or all of so-called Lake Leaside. And indeed, a lot of work has been done. There are hundreds of feet of sturdy new wire fence on the north end of the water reaching almost to Brentcliffe Rd. Patching has been done at some weak looking point, as illustrated above by before and after pictures at the end of a lane off Laird beside the TD bank complex. But the water, which is supposed to be drained, remains deep. This may be a result of the physical capacity of City facilities to accommodate it. But it is a murky and seemingly unhealthy pond that needs cleaning up. Flooded “Lake Leaside” to be drained, receive fence repair
