Ministry, city act on noise, dust complaints: Feb. 14, 2013 Tamara Shephard article, Etobicoke Guardian

Opening paragraphs of the article:

ML Ready Mix Concrete has operated since its owners purchased the property at 29 Judson St. in 2002 in a residential neighbourhood down the street from Mimico GO Station, a seniors’ residence and Coronation Park.
