Less than one year out from the Pan Am Games, it looks as though Hamilton bylaw officers have been tasked to 'clean-up' the north end neighbourhood. A story on a bylaw blitz surrounding the the construction site that will be Tim Hortons Field tops today's Daystarter, along with a forecast for long-sleeved aficionados who should welcome a break from the hot and humid weather with a cloudy 20 C Wednesday.

If you’re looking to get gas this morning, there are two spots registering the cheapest price around at 126.9. Costco at 100 Legend Ct. near Golf Links Road in Ancaster and the Amco at 859 Hwy 6 near 5th Concession West in Flamborough are both selling the lowest fare.

There are no notable delays on Go Transit Wednesday.

Here are the issues police are reporting on the roads:

  • QEW Fort Erie bound at HWY 403 lanes has reports metal and tire debris in all lanes. 6:36 a.m.

DayStarter weather

Tuesday will be mainly cloudy with a 30 per cent chance of showers. The temperature is expected to break into the 20s, but just barely, with the high of 20 C and a UV index rating of 5. 

The break from the heat and humidity queues up a sunshine filled forecast that had originally showed no rain for the weekend, but has now changed to give a 40 per cent chance of showers on Saturday.

The city's municipal by-law team appears to be tasked with cleaning up a neighbourhood that has been under construction for over a year, leaving frustrated homeowners with laundry lists of cleanup tasks for their walkways and doors, while the construction debris piles up in the street

If you need an early taste of the Greenbelt Picnic, Daniel Lanois and Sarah Harmer gave a preview of what's to come at Christie Lake. Check out reporter Adam Carter's preview and video from the shores of the conservation area here.
