Early in the project piling activities started and almost immediately complaints were made by the communities – residents felt disruptive and irritating vibration in their houses. Within three months a number of initiatives were formed against the project.

A Facebook page, “Citizens United against West Toronto Diamond Pile Drivers” was opened and a complaint was filed on behalf of the community by the West Toronto Diamond Community Group.
