When I launched this site 2 years ago, one of the compelling reasons for doing so was that I was struck by how many of the businesses in Leslieville are locally owned and operated. Another big observation was (and still is) how proud most Leslievillers, residents and business owners, are of their neighbourhood and its vitality.

A film crew is warning Torontonians it will set off a series of controlled explosions east of downtown tonight that will look much like a real disaster.
“The explosions will be about 25 feet high and 30 feet wide,” said Don Carmody, a producer on Resident Evil: Afterlife. “They’re over quickly, like what you’d expect from gasoline.”
From 6:30 p.m until 9 p.m, the crew will film the blasts in the gravel parking lot of the Cinespace Studios on Booth Avenue, near Queen Street… Continue
