Wait crap. Hover over the blank space above and you'll see whited out text when you don't put a space between Wonderful and Waterloo.

(I'm on both sites so I don't really care )

I wondered about that myself when I went to type in the two "W" words, and was pleasantly surprised to see them appear together in my post.

Here's a nice picture I found of Barrie's skyline. Apparently there is a major development proposed called "Harmony Village" that would dramatically alter and modernize the Barrie skyline. Barrie's population is approximately 140 000 with a metropolitan area quickly closing in on the 200 000 mark.

I know the building in the background is the Price building, but what is the church steeple in front? Is that at the Ursulines school?

sometimes it's good to be literal.

Nope, it is the beautiful Chalmers-Wesley United Church.


http://archiseek.com/2009/1852-chalm.../#.Ui8wXjbdcYI



In fact, from right to left:

First steeple: Cathedral of the Holy Trinity of the Anglican Diocese of Quebec

Second steeple: Basilique-Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Québec

Third and fourth steeple: Sanctuaire Notre-Dame du Sacré-Coeur

Fifth steeple: Chalmers-Wesley United Church


The english history of Quebec City can easily be distinguished through its churches.
