The Columbia is still going, a bottling line was taken out 2 years ago,but now they have a " craft beer " line going,cant remember the name, but the orginal is made in Chicago. Kookaney Gold is very popular.

Jimmy,s pub built a new liqueur store and are building a craft beer brewery attached to it on Canyon st. and across the street is another new pub called Caseys.

Three winerys now, plenty of good eating places and fishings great.  You would love it.

Forgot to mension a Ramada Inn and a Timmys, plus a great Rec Centre with an indoor pool.

Great. I moved to Strathroy in 2002 after 40+ years in beautiful London.

 Yeah, the r.v. park on Northwest. was in Tims last night by chance for halibut and chips, so expensive now at $28. Try the Sushi at the Red Fin next time your through.  We live close to the D.Q.

Not knocking it ,but I cant understand why Christina is so popular?  Enjoy your break.

I never lived in Montreal,but work took me there as well as trips to watch the Canadians play. Always stopped in at one of the great smoked meat delis. Anyone remember Schwartz,s on St. Lauraunt Blvd. Bens on Metcalfe St. or Dunn,s on St.Catherine St. which was my favorite . The window was always full of jars of banana peppers.

Toronto had Katz,s on Dufferin in yorkdale, and another good one was Wolfies on Sheppard.

Winnipeg had Oscars on North Main and then he moved downtown, Carlton st I think.

I dont know if any of them are still around, but Dunn,s has a branch in Vancouver that is open but its not strickly a deli.
