hERitage


Joining Dad on his visit to the "Genius Bar" in Toronto, we drove along the Queen Elizabeth Way. Although the QEW was the preferred route to the big city in my youth, for several years now we have avoided the corridor because the volume of traffic is so great that it becomes a great big parking lot.

As we sped along the relatively open freeway today, I caught sight of the old lamp posts that I remember from my youth. Their simple ER flourish is much more beautiful than the "alien parking lot" lights that now run down the centre of our major highways. Thank goodness a little bit of our heritage has survived.
