Yes, I am in favour of the Bosa Foods grocery store.
My 85-year-old mother lives at Perry’s Mew townhouses (for 35 years), which is a block away and desperately needs a walkable grocery store.
In December 2020, after getting off a bus with food, she was run over by a speeding SUV on St. Johns Street.
There are no cross walks at St. Johns and Elgin Street. It is impossible to cross and I myself have had several close calls despite waiting 10 minutes to cross.
People feel very entitled to speed and will not stop for a pedestrian.
Having Bosa on the south side will immensely help my mother access food without harm.
More crossing lights, more police ticketing and a grocery store are desperately needed.
