It's good news of course for the circus themselves as they expand to keep pace with similarly irreverent international performers like Cirque Du Soleil. It's a shame though for the neighbourhood as we'll lose one of the few quirky presences remaining on Bay Street, to be replaced no doubt by another shiny set of apartments.
