Dear WRConnected Users: WOW! Our fourth "birthday"! We've grown so much over the past four years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover some of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

Are the rents on those units just untenable? Perhaps city taxes on empty storefronts should be adjusted to make filling them a more attractive option.

Most or perhaps all of the vacant units across the street are (probably/speculation) going to be turned into an LCBO.

Rana's "new" location really isn't new, it's been there for some time.

Also, restaurants don't generally move into just any retail unit; they prefer a place with the ventilation and other infrastructure for a commercial kitchen already in place.

Looks like asbestos removal has begun on the site; demolition sure to follow soon after.
Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.

Where was this exactly? For some reason, I never have seen this chimney, how could I have missed it?

I know! I used to work in the area and never noticed the chimney either. Sad

Cool! Thanks so much. I have no idea how I missed that, perhaps because I haven't taken that part of Hall's Lane during the day for a while.
