I'm in mourning. My heart is broken for that tall city icon that long stood sentry over a busy Sahali intersection at Columbia Street and McGill Road.
A magnificent mature ponderosa pine tree was felled in one day after decades (centuries?) of growth, providing so much and asking for so little.
It was felled by a company of he-men wielding chainsaws and chippers for what? More car lanes? More space for fast food junkies?
