Welcome to our October 2013 e-Newsletter!      

Later this month, parts of the city will be overrun by the undead as Toronto's Zombie walk celebrates 10 years. Scroll down to find out where they will be spotted or how to participate.

The Huffington Post recently published a guide to the city's best restaurants according to their staff. Maybe some of your favourites are on it?

While we all love Toronto, apparently there are seven better cities in which to live - we are ranked number eight (although Paris has been knocked down to #3!) 

As always, I thank you for your past and future business and any referrals you may have are greatly appreciated.
