I really appreciate this article. My brother is starting up a restaurant in Oshawa and it has been a little tough for him. It seems like he is gaining popularity though.

This is another fine example of adaptive re-use of old buildings allowing successful new opportunities. When the bigwigs talk about "small business incubators," our street-car era neighborhood commercial districts and their old buildings offer low rents and platforms for creativity. This article helps spread the message.
