Honest Ed's

Could be worse; could be much worse, and I thought it would be. They'll keep the old buildings on Markham, which is the main thing, though I doubt the businesses now in them will survive. I mean, how long will it take to build this thing? I'll be sad to lose Ed's and sad to lose the low-rise at Bloor and Bathurst; but tall buildings do blot the sun that makes Bloor and Bathurst a hell in the summertime. Nothing does the same for, say, Spadina and Bloor, and oh does Spadina and Bloor suffer for it three months of the year.
