Correction: The head of the London Downtown Business Association (LDBA) was erroneously identified as Councillor Harold Usher in the original post. The head of the LDBA is Bob Usher, and the post has been updated to correct this mistake. Thanks go to reader Elaine for pointing out the error, which I can only attribute to my having city councillors on the brain.
For a limited time only, the City of London is giving you the can't-miss opportunity of a lifetime to catch its latest and greatest downtown production, "The Sinkhole"! That's right, get two hours of free parking between Waterloo, York, Ridout and Queens at Dundas and Wellington before this record-setting run of performances ends! You can't drive to "The Sinkhole," so you might as well get out of your car and walk. Don't miss out, this is a limited-time offer!*
*Offer ends when the sinkhole is repaired. In other words, who knows. And, no, there won't be any street signage to let anyone know.
At least Bob Usher, the head of the Downtown Business Association, is pumped by the "creative atmosphere" of downtown. "What a fantastic opportunity to get people talking about our downtown," Usher said to the London Free Press. Don't worry, Bob, people are already talking about downtown, but it's not the mural and the metal trees that have got them talking.
