The lure of the Big Smoke

torontosmoke.jpg"I woke up late last fall in Montreal wondering where all my friends had gone," writes actor and director Andrew Shaver in a recent blog post.

"I'd been warned it would happen. That it was inevitable. That the anglophone communities in Montreal were temporary and transient."

Andrew Shaver has been the Artistic Director of Montreal's Sidemart Theatrical Grocery since its inception in 2006.

Now he's setting up shop in the up-and-coming neighbourhood of Leslieville, in the east end of Toronto.

So how does he explain his decision? Listen to his interview with Jeanette Kelly.
