Just like McDonalds they went/are going through the process.
You mean the McDonalds that was forced through by the former mayor even though City staff recommended against it?

The City has shown on multiple occasions that they will allow active municipal politicians to use their influence to financially benefit themselves. Look no further than recent developments in the Greens or the just announced redevelopment on Pasqua. And yes, City staff and (to my knowledge) a current councillor have voiced their distaste that this is allowed to occur.

Or, in other words, you have zero proof for your claims. Let's stop making baseless claims and creating conspiracies. I think we've all had enough of that after the last 18 months.

There’s more than enough evidence to show that corruption in general has gone up considerably in the last 18 months. It’s not hard to believe that it has made its way to our quaint city.

You fundamentally misunderstand how the city works. Politics overrules city admin EVERY SINGLE DAY. This is not a new thing nor is it corruption per se. Given that city admin are following bylaws

You are mistaking bad policy with illegal policy. You have demonstrated nothing to show what's happening at REAL is illegal or corrupt. If you want to argue it's bad policy, have at it.

Too bad they aren't closing the old Atlantis Cafe as IMHO they close it too early compared to how late Atlantis used to stay open.
I'd rather they let someone else take that spot or at least open later.

I;m just stating their hours are poor compared to the previous tenants. I wish they would expand their hours at night is all.

Feedback to the owners? Basically when that location opened, the pandemic happened. Hopefully once Dojo Ramen opens next door, evening foot traffic will pick up.

Agreed. Apparently the concept of a late night coffee shop other than Tim's or Robin's is too radical for this city, even before the pandemic.

Gilmour's Corner

Does anyone have information on if Gilmour's will be returning post-pandemic/when more of the workforce has returned to downtown? There is no other business that even comes close to being talked about as much at my place of work. It is sorely missed.

Ya it's sad, the downtown will be a lot different when people come back to work and see what's missing.

Siam is still around, for which I am eternally grateful.

Gilmour's is also one of the popular places for some of the people at my work too.

Gud, hobo's donuts, not sure about Gilmour's and that Japanese place beside old Atlantis Coffee across from Victorias. Not sure about food court in Cornwall, because I would never step foot in that cesspit mall.

Gud Eats and Hobo Donuts both opened and closed during the pandemic. It sucks that they’re gone, but they weren’t there when people left their offices. They were both great additions to downtown. Hobo was regularly sold out (closed for personal reasons) and Gud Eats had terrible timing opening a month into a pandemic with seating restrictions and a lot fewer customers downtown. They were busy, but delivery services took a huge chunk of their profits. I’d like to see them try again, but I don’t know that that will ever happen. That Japanese place I don’t know much about, but Dojo Ramen will hopefully be open there soon. Boards N Beans is another place that did well pre-pandemic, but restrictions put a huge damper on their business model.
