Who has lived on Union St in Strathcona? Well KD Lang has spent sometime here and so has Ken Lum. We also know Nick Milkovich grew up on the 700 blk . Oh and what about Stan Douglas? ... and what do they all have in common? I'd bet dollars to donuts everyone of them has stepped into the store at 598 Union St.
Here's a household name for anyone who's lived in Strathcona and it's Benny.
John Mackie writes a great article on Benny that nails it. Take a few minutes and enjoy the read and spread the love by sharing.
