Sneak peak: Building Code
After launching in Montreal, the RenoRun materials delivery app expanded to the Toronto area in late 2017. In Quebec they cover Montreal, Laval, and the West Island. In Toronto, their coverage area ranges from Burlington to Courtice along Lake Ontario, and north to Aurora and Richmond Hill. RenoRun promises a two-hour delivery window for fees ranging from $45 to $65. Here’s what one reader has to say about the service:
Working in the core of the city we have limited choices for materials and leaving the site can be costly in terms of time and productivity. RenoRun has filled that void, allowing us to keep focused on building and moving forward with our renovation projects. The app is easy to use and customer service/support has been great. My key guys are hooked up with the app and we have the materials we need at our fingertips.

Life in the big city wouldn't be the same without our critters. With Toronto's tree canopy and plentiful ravines, raccoons and squirrels almost outnumber the human population. Then there are coyotes, foxes, and the occasional deer, depending on where you live.
It's not possible to completely eliminate wildlife, Arthurs says, but you can make the yard a less desirable place to be. Cats don't like warm spicy smells, especially cinnamon, so push a few cinnamon sticks into the soil, and when it rains the smell will deter them from using the bed as a litter box. Raccoons are notoriously hard to get rid of, and they tend to mark territory, so Arthurs suggests a motion activated scarecrow sprinkler – move across the yard, you get doused. It works on raccoons, squirrels, cats, but also coyotes, foxes, and deer.
And if you don't plant large trees or hedges near the house, wildlife have no way to climb up onto your roof.
Backyard compost bins are a big draw for wildlife, particularly rats, and they're not particularly effective when they don't get enough sun and heat to break down the contents.
