In a city with nothing to do.
That is the fate of the residents of Elliot Lake, Ontario. The Canadian Press reports that the Algo Centre Mall, the mall whose roof collapsed earlier this summer, was the shopping, meeting and social centre of the isolated community. When I say isolated I kid you not. The city of 13,500 is smack dab in the middle of the Canadian Shield, thirty clicks north of the highway and a long two hour drive from the nearest city of any size, Sudbury.
"'You can't buy underwear in Elliot Lake today, one woman observed." No library either and sixty per cent of retail is buried underneath the Algo Centre Mall's roof.
