Just above St Clair St. west and just west of Keele, are two streets that have a long history with West Toronto’s Meat packing and processing industry – Gunns Rd (named after one of the original packers in the area) and Glen Scarlett Rd. Both of these roads are not visited much by the nearby residental community simply because of their deep industrial character. A walk there today exhibits an geniuely wonderful mixture of enterprising firms who have been there a long time and have worked for  continued success and new use refurbishment of other buildings. Also there is a great meat shoppe, set up just like one in a meat packing area should be.
