As Joni Mitchell said, "Don't it always seem to go, you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone?" Many feel that's what's happening to Commercial Drive. We love the quirky, bohemian, only-on-the-Drive flavour of our great neighbourhood. But it seems to be human nature to want to tidy up the rough edges, maybe spruce things up a bit and before you know it, things just 'aint what they used to be. Often that's OK. Change can be good. Or maybe we polish so much we lose that beautiful patina.
