For those who lived in the west Junction when The CPR ruled a shocking image.

Standing in front of Dollarama just east of Jane St looking west. Looking all the way to the Walmart and to Runnymede Rd and to the rear Jane St you are standing in the old Torcan trucking division yard if the Canadian Pacific Railway.

Now it is a long block of retail hugged in the north by the CPR tracks.

The last of the Torcan building being removed.

About the site as industrial island.

Once land belonging to the CPR Railway and used as a transshipment structure from train to trucks, the bulk of the building was taken down a over 1o years ago, but the above ground docks and the foundations were left.
