Windsor - Jun. 8, 2015: The City Market opened in the Walkerville area this weekend, and by all indications, it was a smashing success.

Windsor - May. 7, 2015: Today’s column comes with a disclaimer. It’s not for the faint of heart. To my family, friends and associates, the following may be quite shocking to all of you. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. I haven’t had a coffee in over a week. Or French fries. Or pizza. Or a lot of things I used to eat and drink. Why? Because along with ten of my colleagues at DJ Galvanizing, and our spouses, I began a program called the 8 Week Challenge. FULL STORY
