Editorial Commentary


By Samantha Wharton

Riskboss Magazine Senior Editor

Most initially thought it would be over relatively quickly, but we all know now that this is not the case. COVID19 and the dramatic impact it has had on the world appears to be staying with us for some time longer. Again, we would like to extend our thoughts and prayers to everyone affected. It will pass, but not before taking a mind-bending toll on society. Please keep safe, help others and keep your distance!

Our last edition received incredible reviews, particularly the article on human trafficking in condominiums that received 1,500 hits the first week. Thanks to Sandy Biback and the team at Meeting Professionals Against Human Trafficking (www.mpaht.com) for all the hard but important work that they do. Please support them in this very worthy cause.

Our Manhattan historian Joyce Gold has created a very detailed article in this edition on the 19th anniversary of 911. We offer our prayers and support to all the victims and their families. If you have never been to lower Manhattan at Ground Zero, please reach out to Joyce for a personal tour of the neighbourhood. It is something you will always remember.

As always, we want to hear from you on what is important, and we will research and respond with content-rich articles. Our use of subject matter experts ensures objective and credible responses to your inquiries and ideas.

If you would like to advertise in our next edition, please let us know. Our advertising costs are the lowest in the industry. They cover our printing costs. Additionally, unlike other magazines, you get advertising exclusivity.

We hope you like this edition and feel that it is time well spent.


Reader Commentary

“We rent in a condominium on the Waterfront in Toronto. We were very interested in reading the article on pet ownership particularly about owners not controlling their dogs while in the hallways. Our daughter was the victim of a dog bite and has since been terrified of dogs. Some people don’t understand this. For those pet owners who control their dogs properly, we would just like to say thank you.

Mr. & Mrs. D. Rodrigues, Condominium Owners, Toronto

Riskboss: Thank you for your comments. Yes, this is an important issue for many people, and that is why we wrote about it to keep everyone well informed.

I am a responsible condominium owner and I rent out my unit to a very responsible tenant. I am pretty upset with irresponsible tenants in our building who have now created a Facebook page full of negative commentary about the property manager and the Board, mostly untrue. While I believe in the rights of tenants, this group is taking it too far. Hopefully you can write something about what is and what is not appropriate in condominiums with respect to tenants

Dennis V, Condominium Owner

Riskboss: Thank you for your comments. This is another very hot and controversial topic. Thanks for the idea. We will write about this in our next edition under the Elephant in the Room section.  Stay tuned!
