    From Glen Murray's newsletter: This is the area below the TCHC building on east side of Jarvis that was, at one time, to become a skate park.

    Neighbourhood gentrification continues as Mounties is now closed.

    The people who frequented Mounties at least weren't a problem. It helped that it closed at 10, I guess, and I never minded it - nothing wrong with the local lower-income residents having a place to drink and socialize where they won't feel uncomfortable. Alphie's, on the other hand....

    I'd love for this area to do well because I feel its success would eventually have important impact on the viability of Regent Park. Dundas East has so much potential and isn't getting proportionate attention.
