This sign has generated A LOT of discussion on Bells Corners Rocks! It’s located beside the Bells Corners Barber Shop in the space formally occupied by Anwar’s Kitchen, Trini’s Caribbean Delights and the murderous Firecracker Man.

Al’s Steak House Conference Centre?
india
Renovations continue apace at the East India Company Restaurant/Conference Centre. No shortage of “Indian food” in Bells Corners!

Rick, the missus and his employees/groupies have been campaigning up a storm all summer, distributing “free” goodies at BBQs. Now that the Oct. 27 election is drawing nigh he’s gone into overdrive, and the bill for hot dogs and other “hospitality expenses” is approaching six figures.
ricksign-1
Rick is NOT supposed to be campaigning with public funds (hundreds of thousands of dollars so far) but hey! all the other smug politicians are doing it, so why should Rick show any restraint?

Team Rick’s next gig in Bells Corners is this Saturday at noon in Hillside Park Donoghue Memorial Park, with the ribbon-cutting at 1:00. Look for all the political bigwigs to be smiling for the camera and self-congratulating. If YOU didn’t get an invitation from Rick, don’t feel bad – only certain homes in his database are targeted.

New business in the FreshCo mall. I wonder if Spahara and the Mongolian Village are happy to be moving to make way for a drive-thru bank? CafĂ© Arome can’t be too pleased either.
gabriel2
No shortage of pizza places in Bells Corners.
rexall
No shortage of big chains and bike-taxis either. I gave this woman a ride from the call centre to the bus stop.
deck
Deck at Grazie!
dorm
Algonquin College students are moving into Bells Corners, so Beddington’s is hoping they’ll equip their bedrooms in the Westcliffe mall.
mosque
The new mosque is nearing completion. Wonder if Rick will provide free hotdogs/pop for THEIR ribbon-cutting ceremony?
soccer
The players in the “government league” in Lynwood Park are quite skilled, so the games can be very exciting.
soccer3
Local residents like to find a bench (not an easy task) and watch the action. The players love the Lynwood Park field, even if it’s smallish.

Every Tuesday is Open Mic Night on East Side Mario’s funky rooftop lounge.
west2
No shortage of talent! There was a steady stream of gifted musicians and comedians.
west
Half-price appetizers and cheap beer.
car3
The car show in the Loblaws/Zellers parking lot was a lot less impressive than last year – the crappy weather didn’t help.

Still, there was lots to see!

Rick dropped in for a quick photo op with the Wicked guys.

Maybe a flea market would work here?
solar
This guy from Calgary lives in his solar-powered vehicle with his cat and his dog.
ravens
The Carleton University team had a cool vehicle.
veggies
Many would like to see a farmer’s market in the same huge unused parking lot but Loblaws owns the asphalt meadow and is unlikely to welcome the competition.
garlicfranco
This guy went to high school in Westcliffe.
garlic2
He was selling garlic at the Byron/Richmond Farmer’s Market.
marketguys
A lot of these vendors used to go to the farmer’s market at Landsdowne before the RedBlacks moved in. Spot the spelling mistake?
cenotaph
It’s every Saturday in the strip park near the Westboro Cenotaph.

Spot the spelling mistake?

A lot of the farmers were from the Quebec side.
