Time:05:57 pm
I'm going to be moving to London Ontario August 17. I need to find an inexpensive, safe apartment/house for less than $750 per month that allows pets (2 cats) either out of a window to the outside or another route so they can go outside (and that the outside be safe enough for them). Anyone subletting or renting out such a place? :) thank you

Subject:Cat that really really needs and deserves a good home
Time:09:32 pm
This is Chevy

He's 2.5 and has been at the London Humane Society since April 2006.

He is playful and good natured but this beauty needs to get out of cage environment.

If you have any room for a great cat, think about taking Chevy into your home and giving him a great life.

TD-Canada Trust shuts down two offices in London
Wed, July 26, 2006
By HANK DANISZEWSKI, LONDON FREE PRESS BUSINESS REPORTER

About 300 TD-Canada Trust employees in London found out this morning they would soon be out of a job.

Bank officials announced Wednesday they are closing two regional support centres located in a commercial building on Oxford Street E. just east of Clarke Road.

One centre processes credit information such as mortgages and personal loans and the other handles information and inquiries from staff at retail banking branches across Southwestern Ontario.

TD Bank Financial Group spokesperson Neil Parmenter said the two centres would be shut down over the next six months and the operations would be transfered to existing TD centres in Mississauga and Montreal.

Parmenter offered little rationale for the shutdown, except to say it was part of a regional restructuring.

“From time to time decisions are made about consolidating facilities,” he said.

Parmenter said staff at the London operation would be given an opportunity to transfer to Mississauga and Montreal.

Parmenter said staff who do not want to transfer will get “an exit package that exceeds industry standards.”

In 1999, the Toronto-Dominion bank merged with Canada Trust, which was founded in London in 1864 as the Huron and Erie Savings and Loan Society.

It grew to become Canada's largest trust company, with innovations such as extended branch hours and automatic banking machines.

Parmenter said despite the shutdown of the support centre, TD-Canada Trust will still have a large number of employees in London.

At the time of the 1999 merger Canada Trust had 3,200 employees in London and Parmenter said the number of employees today is about the same.

“Outside of Toronto, it’s definitely our biggest centre - particularly in Ontario,” he said.

Chamber of Commerce general manager Gerry Macartney was caught off guard by the closure announcement.

He said he was puzzled by the decision because London offers an obvious cost advantage in commercial real estate and housing costs.

“I’m anxious to see the rationale or explanation because it comes as bit of surprise, to say the least. There’s a critical mass of those kind of businesses here so the talent pool is here,” said Macartney.

THE WHO TO LAUNCH FIRST MAJOR WORLD TOUR IN OVER 20 YEARS
NEW YORK, NY -- (July 13, 2006) – Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, the dynamic, innovative force behind The Who, announced today that they will kick off their first world tour in over 20 years on September 12th at Philadelphia’s Wachovia Center. The legendary rock band is already confirmed to play 17 dates at arenas and amphitheatres across the U.S. and Canada with more U.S. shows to follow in November and December. Planned concerts for 2007 include South America, Japan, Australia and Europe to be announced later.

Anticipation for the tour is already running at an all-time high following the incredible critical and box-office response to the Who’s European shows which opened in June. Fans and critics alike have hailed the show as being, “Just like the good ole days,” with the same, unbridled power and emotion that exemplifies a Who show.

The Who, famous for their powerful music and energy on stage, will perform songs from their new mini rock opera, Wire & Glass, material from their upcoming studio album along with their greatest hits and rarities, certain to please long time fans. The new album, provisionally called “Who 2,” and the band’s first since 1982’s It’s Hard, is scheduled for an October 23 release.

"For the first time in 25 years we are returning to the USA with great live music - the entire catalogue of our old stuff - and new music. We have a great new video show, a new Mini-Opera and plans to do some special shows with special themes. Our European shows are warming us up, and we will be in great form when we start the tour in September,” said Pete Townshend. “I don't think I've ever looked forward to a tour as much as this one. Roger and I are both fit and well, ready to rock."

'Pete and I are really excited to be returning to the US with some brand new music to play. We'll also be digging out some rarities that we've not played for a long time,” said Roger Daltrey.
“We're looking forward to reconnecting with our American fans and hopefully seeing some new ones coming along too.”

Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey reunited for the Live 8 concert in London’s Hyde Park as well as the 9/11 Benefit concert at Madison Square Garden. They will be joined on stage for this tour by John ‘Rabbit’ Bundrick on keyboard, Pino Palladino on bass, Zak Starkey on drums and Simon Townshend on guitar and vocals.

“The explosive on-stage energy from The Who makes for a truly electrifying show,” said Steve Howard, executive vice president touring, CPI. “The Who is back like never before.”

Tickets for select cities will go on sale beginning Monday, July 17th and will be available at all usual outlets with more dates to be announced in the weeks to come. The official tour club presale begins Thursday, July 13 at 1pm and will run through Saturday, July 15 at 9pm. Hot Seat and other special VIP packages are also available from Thursday, July 13 at 1pm. For further information including Tour Club memberships and VIP packages visit www.thewhotour.com.

Every ticket sold for the tour will include a free Virtual Ticket membership in The Who Tour club. Updated throughout the tour, tour club members will be given an exclusive insider's look at every aspect of the tour. From rehearsals and preparations to coverage via audio and videos streams, downloads, set lists and news and much more.
