I live on Roncesvalles and am very concerned about the welfare of our local shopkeepers, some of whom have been serving us for over 10 years. I wonder if there is some way you can help conteract the ugliness of construction so that they do not go bankrupt and leave us with a ghost town. That would be disastrous for us as well as for them. Right now, our street is barely recognizable as the neighbourhood it once was. I am not sure how best to improve things, bu maybe Christmas lights on the east side of the street that are on all day? It is not just the parking problem that chases us away. I do all of my shopping on Roncesvalles but otherwise I find myself walking through laneways to avoid the area. Second Cup is gone, Boho has gone under, and word on the street is that Mad Gypsy may not be with us much longer. This is just the beginning—green grocers and booksellers are also in trouble. People have now gotten into the habit of shopping elsewhere and they may not return very quickly. How can we do more to keep from losing our neighbours?
