Weston Village Thanks Darkstar416 -- talk the talk but walk the walk, is my motto. It is exhausting trying to run a business as well as participate in committees to make your community a better place when you read these blogs and wonder who these people are taking cheap shots at people who actually made the investment into the community even though it might not be everything we hoped for. Do they shop locally, do they get involved, etc.? It is a curiousity. At least Artcube was trying to make a difference even if in the end they aren't successful. And to answer you regarding Starbucks since you made comment: we are looking for ANY and ALL name companies to take the chance, have some vision and plunge into our community. They did it in Parkdale and Leslieville. Why is there a Starbucks at Keele and St. Clair? We have tried encouraging local folks who have hinted at their desire to open a business to do so. Starbucks was the convenient name for the article. If you know of any interested entrepreneurs, we can pretty much guarantee that an independent coffee house will go over very well in the community! We might not be the hip and cool community yet but we were the Bloor West of our time and the destination community for a great number of years before being slagged by the powers that be.
