Some Sens fans are NOT happy!
Halloween is over so it’s time to start marketing Xmas at our Canadian Tire.
Many shopaholic consumers got an early start on Sunday.
This friendly woman was rolling over to Loblaws to “just hang out and people-watch” but she planned to visit the Shopping Event on her way back to the Stillwater Creek Retirement Community.
Whoops! One of the signs along the strip had the wrong hours.
This friendly francophone did brisk business.
A saucy woman from South Hill Designs was happy with the turnout.
I couldn’t believe how packed it was at the Psychic Fair – these people understand marketing!
People lined up patiently to get their fortunes told AFTER paying $6 admission. P.T. Barnum would smile.
Entertainment or scam? Similar to buying a lottery ticket?
Hope she got good news.
Many of the same psychics were here last year.
These guys seemed more like preachers than fortune-tellers.
LOTS of bizarres next weekend – Tristan is trying to keep track of local events on Bells Corners Rocks!
This friendly couple from Lancashire/Yorkshire is pumped for the Lynwood Park Retirement Community’s Christmas Craft Bazaar.
No shortage of maple leaves in Lynwood Village.
This United Church honcho has a BIG row to hoe – he does the entire front lawn by hand and then trucks them away in his homemade trailer.
This guy was sleeping on the job.
He better get back to work soon and get rid of the graves.
Halloween is (unfortunately) over for another year.
These diehards at Local Heroes are still partying!
The joke’s on the pedestrians – there IS no other sidewalk!
Time to get up front and personal with speeding traffic.
Running the gauntlet on the sidewalk to nowhere.
Maybe this could be a partial solution that could improve pedestrian safety at this unpleasant spot?
Myers has FINALLY agreed to cut pedestrians a break by parking some of their cars east-west and they expect us to be grateful – their sweetheart deal with the City and the politicians is still in effect.
Peds, wheelchair people, parents pushing strollers, old folks with walkers, sidewalk cyclists, bike-taxi pilots – BE CAREFUL! One scratch and the cars will be back to their old location blocking the Westcliffe pathway.
Things will get even hairier for pedestrians once demolition is finished to make room for a drive-thru bank and another entrance to the FreshCo plaza for cars.
Luckily Rick’s Special Envoy is on the job to keep an eye on the construction crews, just like she supervised the Coco boys last year during Rick’s $3M road-widening project.
Too bad the Spahara had to move – I liked their old location better.
Anyone for a pedicure?
Another pedestrian-friendly parking job.
The ditch won’t be filled in but a little stub of sidewalk will be poured in front of the TD drive-thru bank.
The bank will be an “island” with traffic flowing on both sides as vehicles enter and leave the FreshCo plaza. Profit over people? Car-centric planning porn?
Wow! Day care is so expensive in Bells Corners compared to Gatineau.
It must be hard for people looking to enter the workforce when child care is so expensive. I’m not saying that the Quebec model is better but the different approaches will probably be a key issue in next year’s federal election – the three parties have VERY different policies on child care.
The benefit has been capped at $2K, but more parents in high-income families will be tempted to stay home now that the Harper government has announced income-splitting – will this mean less demand for Bells Corners day care businesses?
The oddly-named 1951 is hiring – is that an old Cock and Bull sofa?
I think maybe the guy on the ladder is the head chef.
