Hoggs Hollow is an affluent neighbourhood in Toronto, Ontario, Canada which is located in the Don River Valley centred on the intersection of Yonge Street and York Mills Road/Wilson Avenue.
Hoggs Hollow is named after Joseph hogg, a Scotsman who settled in the area in 1824. Hogg operated a whisky distillery and a grist mill, and was viewed as the most successful of all the millers in the valley. The name is usually written without the apostrophe as Hoggs Hollow, but sometimes appears as Hogg’s Hollow.
In 1856, John and William Hogg, sons to the late James Hogg, subdivided their father’s estate under the name "Hoggs Hollow". The Hoggs Hollow subdivision included one hundred and forty-one lots. With the area full of quick sand, swamps and bogs, only a few houses were actually built at this time, however. the subdivision stood in close proximity to the historic village of York Mills. A school, post office, pottery, blacksmith, livery, stable, store, golf links and clubhouse, hillside cemetery (at Yonge Street and Mill Street) and St. John’s Anglican Church served the community, one largely made up of Scottish, Irish and English immigrants.
Subdivision of the present day Hoggs Hollow neighbourhood began in the 1920s with the creation of lots, layout of roads, and design of homes reflecting the aesthetic of the English countryside. In 1925, a two room elementary schoolhouse named the Baron Renfrew School opened to replace an earlier structure at 45 York Mills Road (formerly Mercer Avenue and/or concession road 19) that was destroyed by fire.
The neighbourhood grew in stages and was finally completed in the 1960s. Both St. John’s Anglican Church and Baron Renfrew (renamed York Mills Public School) grew in size with various additions added. Agricola Finnish Lutheran Church was built in 1967, serving Toronto and area’s Finnish Lutheran community.
Hoggs Hollow was connected to Toronto by the Yonge St. streetcar until it was replaced by the Toronto Transit Commission’s Yonge Subway in the early 1970s. Hoggs Hollow is now served by the York Mills subway station.
In 1982, York Mills Public School was decommissioned and renovated as office space for the school board. The historic two room schoolhouse exterior was restored.
Hoggs Hollow was a part of the City of North York until 1998 when that city merged with five other municipalities and a regional government to form the new "City of Toronto".
The Jolly Miller tavern, circa 1857, located at the bottom of Hoggs Hollow Hill, 3885 Yonge Street, was closed for many years, and has just re-opened in 2004 after many battles between developers, the city and groups that wanted to preserve the historical landmark. The George S. Pratt House, circa 1886, located at 17 Mill Street, is another historic landmark in Hoggs Hollow. In need of funds, The York Mills Public School building was sold by the school board and demolished. Many of the original estate homes and modern movement residences of … Read More
Manifestation has been a hot topic ever since the release of the movie The Secret. Using energy, focus and intention to help create the best outcome in our lives is not a new concept. How does Reiki fit into this?
Reiki energy carries the essence and vibration of love. Love is the only energy that is real. Everything else is illusion. When channeling Reiki energy toward a future vision, the vibrational quality of Reiki helps to attract situations, people, and opportunities to us that also carry that same vibration.
Just as we must let go of the outcome when giving a Reiki healing, in manifestation, we must do the same. Holding onto and becoming invested in our vision in a needy, or rigid manner means that we are operating from a level of fear. Fear is a different vibration than love and will create more situations where our fears are triggered. This can be a learning opportunity and a chance to transform ourselves as the universe always mirrors our core beliefs.
From my own experience, I manifested a job after being out of work for nine months. I used a Reiki Manifestation Triangle. Here is how you construct the triangle.
1. On a large sheet of paper, draw a triangle
2. Beside the left point, write your name
3. Beside the right point, write your goal in a brief sentence. For example – to own and live in my own house.
4. Above the top point, write the outcome. The outcome needs to be very specific and detailed. If you ask for vague, you manifest vague. Here is an example – a two-story house, in Etobicoke, with three bedrooms, cream coloured wall to wall carpeting, with finished basement newly painted in green pastel where I spend each evening relaxing with a great book, etc. You get the idea.
5. In the middle of the triangle, write – I am now manifesting this or something even better for the highest good of all. Or use your own words.
Everyday I reviewed each corner of the triangle. I would draw a Reiki symbol over it, read it out loud and send energy over the words. In order to help me visualize the Reiki Symbols, I used a pen to draw a Cho-Ku-Rei over each corner.
I started with my name, moved to the goal, and then to the outcome. When I sent energy to the outcome, I visualized it with as much emotion and focus as I could. I saw myself happy in my new job, loving my coworkers, and feeling fulfilled. Then I would end the session by reading the statement in the middle of the triangle. The final step is to give thanks and let it go. Just trust that it is starting to take shape in the energetic realm.
It took less than a month using the Reiki Manifestation Triangle before I was working again. There are many manifestation techniques that you can incorporate Reiki energy. Try this one … Read More

I’ve always lived close to railway lines. When I was growing up in Orangeville, Ontario, I lived near the main station. Both the Canadian National Railway (CNR) and the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) passed through town. When my sister and I moved to a fifty acre farm in Dixie, Ontario (near Toronto) in 1960, the CPR bisected our land.
For the twenty-two years Karen and I have lived at our current address in Streetsville, Ontario, the CPR has been our neighbour across the back fence. People ask us, “Don’t the trains bother you?” We answer that we don’t even hear them.
We sit on the deck and view a lot of interesting stuff go by. One day I watched a trainload of tanks pass. Didn’t know Canada had so many tanks. We also see intriguing graffiti on the sides of tankers and boxcars. And there are cars from all over the U.S. and Canada.
This is the first shot of the trains I have taken from the deck, but there will be more. It’s best to take such pictures after the leaves have dropped, since it’s hard to see the trains through the summer foliage.

The Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR; AAR reporting marks CP, CPAA, CPI), known as CP Rail between 1968 and 1996, is a Canadian Class I railway operated by Canadian Pacific Railway Limited. Its rail network stretches from Vancouver to Montreal, and also serves major cities in the United States such as Minneapolis, Chicago, and New York City. Its headquarters are in Calgary, Alberta.
The railway was originally built between eastern Canada and British Columbia between 1881 and 1885 (connecting with Ottawa Valley and Georgian Bay area lines built earlier), fulfilling a promise extended to British Columbia when it entered Confederation in 1871. It was Canada’s first transcontinental railway. Now primarily a freight railway, the CPR was for decades the only practical means of long distance passenger transport in most regions of Canada, and was instrumental in the settlement and development of Western Canada. The CP company became one of the largest and most powerful in Canada, a position it held as late as 1975. Its primary passenger services were eliminated in 1986 after being assumed by VIA Rail Canada in 1978. A beaver was chosen as the railway’s logo because it is one of the national symbols of Canada and represents the hardworking character of the company. The object of both praise and condemnation for over 120 years, the CPR remains an indisputable icon of Canadian nationalism.
The Canadian Pacific Railway is a public company with over 15,000 employees and market capitalization of 7 billion USD in 2008.
Canada’s very existence depended on the successful completion of the major civil engineering project, the creation of a transcontinental railway. Creation of the Canadian Pacific Railway was a task originally undertaken for a … Read More
