In Windsor you can see it and taste it!

"...a study that assesses the mortality health risk for native born Canadians from long term exposure to fine particulate matter which is higher in the Montreal-Ottawa-Toronto-Windsor corridor than elsewhere in the country. The authors concluded that there is a 31% increased risk of ischemic heart disease with an increase of 10 μg/m3 increase in PM2.5, a higher increase in health risk than previously estimated (12-14%).

Always a smart move. The first week or so always has problems. Best bet is to let others experience them, find the solutions and then upgrade.

The white American aristocracy are just a blind as their French counterparts were at the beginning of the French Revolution - let's keep them that way!

Chris Hedges: "This is a goal the power elite cannot comprehend. They cannot envision a day when they will not be in charge of our lives. The elites believe, and seek to make us believe, that globalization and unfettered capitalism are natural law, some kind of permanent and eternal dynamic that can never be altered. What the elites fail to realize is that rebellion will not stop until the corporate state is extinguished. It will not stop until there is an end to the corporate abuse of the poor, the working class, the elderly, the sick, children, those being slaughtered in our imperial wars and tortured in our black sites. It will not stop until foreclosures and bank repossessions stop. It will not stop until students no longer have to go into debt to be educated, and families no longer have to plunge into bankruptcy to pay medical bills. It will not stop until the corporate destruction of the ecosystem stops, and our relationships with each other and the planet are radically reconfigured. And that is why the elites, and the rotted and degenerate system of corporate power they sustain, are in trouble. That is why they keep asking what the demands are. They don’t understand what is happening. They are deaf, dumb and blind."

Windsor's Wyandotte Street from Walker Road in the east to the University of Windsor in the west is Windsor's prime and historical business incubation corridor.

When bored on my lunch hour at the library (unpaid hour) and years of travelling on the Crosstown 3 brought me to the idea to explore Wyandotte through the libraries collection of city directories. Because I noticed that the little shops were one thing at one time and now they are something else and they are almost constantly closing one business only to open as something else. What was once was a furniture store is now an ethnic restaurant and so on so on.

Old city directories are great historical records of urban development you can literally see the waves of immigration in them and especially on Wyandotte (also goes for Erie and Ottawa streets) as old established businesses moved out to the suburbs or closed for good. A city needs a Wyandotte street with its old buildings and cheaper rents that allow newcomers to Windsor and Canada to start a business as they struggle to find work and their place in our community.

LaSalle, Tecumseh, Lakeshore don't have a Wyandotte street or an Erie or an Ottawa street, they're to new with urban sprawl to have real old streets with old buildings with rents in strip malls far to expensive for a lot of newcomers. 

With the development or establishing a business they build a community around them. They become local stores and businesses which the majority of Windsorites who don't live along these corridors ignore.

One fear that I have is that the new tunnel plaza is going to stop the flow of this vital artery in the city and isolate a good part of Wyandotte street with the downtown and the rest of Wyandotte to the University.

I love shopping on Wyandotte street or just browsing in the diversity of shops.

The other thing that has also baffled me is that no developer or upscale retailer(s) have taken advantage of the University as it has say in Ann Arbor, or the Richmond Mile in London Ontario. But then the university is still a local commuter school in most Windsor's eyes.

My wish is that the success of Old Walkerville will spread outwards to the rest of Wyandotte, Erie and Ottawa and rebuild the vibrancy that it once was is struggling to do again.

I would love to see this happen... I remember as a young boy going for walks on Erie street, Downtown, Wyandotte etc. with my parents stopping in all kinds of stores. I would love to see these areas return to those former days. I think with effort from the community sticking together it can be done. Love your thoughts on old directories Mark... about 20 years ago during my University years we spent a lot of time at the bars downtown. Only a couple have kept the same name...

This could be a telco buster! Hope that Apple runs with this to include the desktop and cross platform capability!
