It appears something is happening at the old esso station at corner of Lakeshore & K.L.O.
Does anyone know what maybe going in... Oops my bad, chances are businesses on first floor and condos above.

You're right.
A nine-storey seniors' residence and commercial building is proposed for a long-vacant corner in the South Pandosy district.

Riders on a bus had a hitchhiker along for a ride, I can imagine some passengers being rather freaked out.

They died doing what they loved.
I'm posting this from Traditional lands of the British Empire & the current Lands of The Dominion of Canada.
