    Hello,
    it has been a long time since I have opened the beloved publication. So many changes are coming and the sad news is that the developers are keep pushing for demolition our Toronto’ architecture which is so rare and they need more and more space.
    Corner of King/Dufferin is going to be destroyed again? the corner building where the old bank is and the opposite the exquisite brown building will be gone?
    It is unimaginable for me.
    There are such nice articles and the photographs which I have missed so I am so grateful to you Sir.

      It is not over. Our Councillor, Gord Perks, along with everyone in attendance opposes the proposal. Lets see if we have any power.
