In the past, we've had plenty of communication starting in 2009, which has been fruitless and without effect. Our efforts have been exhausted, and it's not reasonable to expect more of the same.
In the future, I may or may not provide warning to your company when I take action, unless Murdoch conceives and implements a plan to care for their property proactively, and not reactively.

There's been some garbage lying around again behind 435 Cumberland ave, and the bags have been ripped open and garbage spread around. The wind blew it all over, down the lane, and onto our property. I was rudely surprised this morning when I headed out to work by all the garbage that was blown over, and I got really ticked off by it. It also really ticks me off that, whenever Murdoch has a problem and they don't have the ability to take care of it, it becomes our problem, and we have to take care of it! We can't even count how often we've had to pick up garbage belonging to 435 Cumberland. Still, after three years, Murdoch is trying to fix these problems without adjusting their budget, without spending money, and without going to too much effort. In other words, nothing has happened, nothing has changed. Except that they removed the cat litter that had been keeping the drunks away. What a winning move that was.
Turns out my lovely wonderful ambitious wife went out early this morning and started cleaning up garbage before I was able to stop her. Here are pictures of what's left:
Well it's been quieter lately behind 435 Cumberland ave, less people drinking, better garbage control. There was another violent guy who tried to kick his way into our building, but he didn't break anything, just left some footprints on the door, so it wasn't as big of a deal as last time. There's been some scary african gang-type people back there making noise at 2am, we leave them alone.

This has been an incredibly rare sight. Ever since the kitty litter was put down on the pad, there has been almost no one drinking here. It's been wonderful! Only twice have I ever seen anybody sitting on the stuff. And the acousta-seal on the fence (the black goopy stuff you see on the brown fence boards) seems to be doing wonders as well. We're really happy with how things have been quieter lately. There are still people who will stand around and drink back there, but not as many, and they don't stay around as long.

Here is a guy who came to drink between City Oasis and our building last night. I took one picture of him and he immediately approached me with verbal threats, so I quickly went back in our west entrance. He started hitting our door with something, I saw some marks on the door the next day. He also broke one of the glass windows at our west entrance, and took a piece of rock and some acousta-seal and put it on one of the cars in our parking lot. This car has also been damaged earlier this year by people drinking on the pad, throwing stuff on our property and at this car. Here is the guy who caused the damage last night:
I don't have pictures of him drinking, but we did find his King Can after he left.
Here is the window he broke:
Here is the car that he vandalised:
So we are continuing to document this stuff to bring to my lawyer. The last time I talked to him about this, he said nothing can really be done until some damage has been done to our property, then it's legally considered a nuisance. And that milestone has now been reached.
