What happened on Wednesday July 11th?

It's a sad day .. a canadian Icon has passed away .. say good by to "Honest" Ed Mirvish ... he passed away this morning at a grand old age of 92.

When I first moved to Toronto, I used to buy all my clothes at the Bathurst store. Where else could you get jeans, socks, a couple of shirts and underwear for around $20. For a kid barely making $5 an hour at a radio station, it was a god send. You could spend hours walking through the store, just browsing. He had everything.

Then he went and brought theatre back to Toronto. Wife and I saw some great shows at his theatres. The Lion King, Cats Rent and so many more.

Thanks for the clothes and thanks for the shows.
