The Weston Village Residents’ Association is organizing a night out at the corner of King St and Elm this Monday. The gathering is to “show support for Helen and John [the proprietors of Olympic Variety], to send out good vibes and to let the community know that we will not stand for our neighbourhood being bullied in any way.”
That intersection has had a fair bit of drama over the past few weeks. Olympic Variety was robbed last week, and there was a shooting the week before. Helen, a proprietor of Olympic Variety, was hurt in the robbery.
The gathering will start at 7:30.
