Cabbies take a huge hit after the mayor flipflops and legalizes Uber.

Uber taxi fares should stay cheap – some councillors wanted to impose “poison pill” requirements on Uber drivers (more expensive insurance, mandatory cameras, newer cars) but all their motions failed.
coventry
Rick Chiarelli, Eli El-Chantiry, Tim Tierney, Keith Egli and a few other politicians were pushing the “poison pill” to help out their wealthy cabbie friends and price many part-time Uber drivers, some making only $8 an hour, off the road. Bumbling politicians get scolded here.
loblaws
Loblaws is opening many new stores while closing others. The Bells Corners store isn’t very busy and employee hours are being cut back.

Loblaws has LOTS of nearby competition.

More increases to follow.

This place used to be a Mac’s Milk, then a glow-in-the-dark mini-putt – what’s next?

Breakfast at Grazie.

The councillor liked Grazie – he got a $500 donation from the ex-partner and got the patio permit problem fixed.

Paint nights were popular.

Grazie’s closing should help Local Heroes a bit – no more direct competion in the same strip mall.

Healthy oils?

Happy faces cheer up the store and get us in the mood for shopping.

    Too bad about Grazie — kept meaning to go there but never had a chance.

    Really happy the city made the right decision on Uber issue — shocking because Ottawa City Council traditionally gets everything wrong but the last 4-5 decisions / positions they have been right about. Very strange but a good thing.
