Toronto infrastructure needs improvements

Experts are saying that the infrastructure in Toronto is susceptible to damage from flash rains, wind and ice storms. Robert Tremblay, director of research for the Insurance Bureau of Canada, said that the infrastructure in Toronto is increasingly vulnerable to the kind of damaging weather events that were experienced on the East Coast of the United States with Hurricane Sandy recently.

Home and business owners are encouraged to secure their valuables in self storage containers to protect them from inclement weather.

"If you want your economy strong you have to be able to move people and you have to be able to move goods across this country,” Karen Leibovici, president of The Great Canadian Infrastructure Challenge, told the Toronto Star.

Infrastructure improvement is also a way of increasing economic activity and creating jobs and gains in productivity, not to mention saving money from repairing damages down the road.

Self storage can be a smart way to hang on to valuable items without taking up room in a house or apartment. For Toronto storage solutions, there's no better than Jiffy Self Storage.
