Nifty Film

Found this today. Very cool! It's been filmed very recently, and features one of my favorite local characters, Kevin Clarke, at the end. My only beef with it is that I generally think of Parkdale's eastern border as the train tracks (though I would include The Gladstone too), and this film includes things much farther east of that. People seem to have very different ideas about Parkdale's boundaries. What do you think?

*warning* not for the squeamish....

I debated for a while about whether to post this, 'cause generally I like to talk about the shiny happy things in Parkdale, and not the kinds of things that would feed the negative image that some have about our beloved 'hood.

I decided (obviously) to post it in the end, because I want to present to you, dear reader, the most accurate, well rounded picture of Parkdale that I can. And that, sometimes, includes the gross. Like this IV tube. Which we found right smack dab in front of our door, replete with bloody bandaid.
