LEVY: Killing King St. one streetcar stop at a time

Brenda Bent — wife of celebrity chef Susur Lee — came to the city’s executive committee last week to plead with Mayor John Tory and councillors to consider the negative impact the streetcar pilot has had on King St. eateries during the past 17 months.

She said Lee restaurant — at King St., east of Bathurst St. — experienced a 15% decline in sales last year, not the “cherry picked” 1.2% figure reported in the city’s 33-page report full of spun numbers and phony logic (the latter my words, not hers) .

I never go near King St. anymore.
