The above image was captured by our network camera mounted at Toronto Island Marina. The picture was taken at about 6:10am Eastern on September 4, 2023 – Labour Day of the last long weekend of the summer. The days are certainly getting shorter. The sun hasn’t risen yet, but the glow of first light from the east is quite tranquil. And we’ve got a mini heat wave going with temps of 31C or higher expected for the next few days. Enjoy while you can!
One of the things about the Toronto downtown skyline is that it’s always changing. In fact, we are working on a project now that will see a new 100 storey building rise to take a place among – and above – the towers.
We will be updating this picture at least monthly. Our view of the city will never be out of date!
Services for Independent Business
Our ETRdotTV Channel services help independent, innovative and interesting businesses grow and connect with people.
Since ETRdotTV is about Life Success, Informed Buying and Fun, we do our best to use that as our guide for providing our services. Life Success means health, wealth and general happiness. Informed Buying is the bridge to a value relationship – where business engages with employees, customers, and the community in a “win-win-win-win” exchange. Of course, Fun is the heart and spirit and satisfaction of the journey that takes its place in the mix.
Our goal is to help these businesses thrive and strengthen the attributes that make them special – through a practical focus on people, planet, and profit.
The methods we use to achieve this involves marrying the tried and true human touch with advantages gained through technology. Think about your own experiences interacting with business – companies that skillfully combine their personal service with beneficial and efficient processes are the companies that you want to deal with.
