Canada Malting Abandoned Silos in Toronto

Canada Malting Abandoned Silos in TorontoLike bookends, the silos form Canada Malting company on the west end of downtown Toronto are ghostly reminders of a once flourishing waterfront industry, providing thousands of jobs and financing the early development of the city. Now, partly torn down, waiting for an opportunity to be turned into over mortgaged condos, or a government funded cultural space for government approved culture. With the railway gone, highways turned into streetcar tracks and only the Redpath sugar plant still making any use of the waterway, it seems that Ayn Rand was right. Atlas shrugged and went on his way.
