Where did the Waterloo sign go? There it isn't

The iconic Waterloo sign has been moved-but where did it go? Is it safe? CBC News launches a tweet-vestigation.

Tweets track the trail of a missing city landmark

In case you hadn't noticed, the iconic vertical Waterloo sign is no longer in its usual spot on King Street near Union.

And if you're like most of us, you hadn't noticed because you'd been avoiding that section of King Street because of the ION light rail construction.

But Kerri Hutchinson noticed and asked the city of Waterloo about it.

That prompted a whole discussion.

UPDATED: Here's where the sign is right now.
