–Trefann Association
Seven News, May 29, 1970

The Trefann Court Residents Association has accused the city government of “Trying to destroy the area by making it so dangerous and uncomfortable that the owners will be forced to sell.”

The charges were sent in a letter to the Urban Renewal Committee of the City Council.

Both Mrs. Edna Dixon of the Trefann Court Residents Association and Mrs. Margaret LeMay of the Trefann Neighbours and Tenant Association appeared before the Urban Renewal Committee during its April 30 meeting, where they commented on the Trefann situation.

The residents association has asked for more guards for empty houses and for more police protection for the area.

After hearing the requests, the Urban Renewal Committee asked the development commissioner for a report on the status of guards, boarding and the situation in regard to the parkette in the area.

The committee also referred the residents association letter to the Trefann Pro-Tem Working Committee for comment and disposition.
