Down in Parkdale
After telling my partner that I wrote this comic, my partner (correctly) noted that the irony here is that Tim Hortons is actually one of the new, corporate businesses encroaching into the neighborhood that the locals, as Parkdale is known in Toronto as a lower income area, can actually afford. Typically, I go to Capital Espresso, a much swankier, “nicer” and notably much more expensive independent coffee shop which is, I think, a worse offender in the gentrification process of the neighborhood (which my partner also noted). Point being that I’m full of shit and i think, maybe, I just really hate these corporate chains irrevocably changing neighborhoods I adore.
Gimme a break, I’m feeling the winter sads hard this week <3
