Support our Past President Tim Toponicki as he “Soldiers On” after his family owned business was engulfed with fire


Tim Topornicki, owner of Topper Linen and the industrial building that was engulfed in flames on Saturday said his company will “soldier on.”

Crews were still on the scene of the smoldering Topper Linen and Uniform Service building Saturday night, after it caught fire that morning.

Tim Topornicki, the textile rental company’s president, told reporters he had no idea what caused the fire. When he arrived at the scene Saturday morning, he said he “just saw smoke and sadness.”

The building is on Mulock Avenue in the Junction neighbourhood, near Keele Street and Dundas Street West.

Topornicki said the family business, which was started by his parents in 1956, is “very much” a part of the local community. The business has six buildings on Mulock Avenue.
