7-Eleven in Toronto加拿大多伦多7-11便利店

7-Eleven是多伦多最常见的24小时城市便利连锁店。多伦多7-11只有少数以加油站便利店形式布局,绝大多数都是中国常见的那种城市便利店形式,甚至在多伦多皮尔逊国际机场也有一家。

加拿大的7-Eleven和日本、美国、菲律宾的7-Eleven大同小异,面积和台湾的7-Eleven差不多大(比菲律宾、美国的店面大很多),贩卖各种商品,价格也比其他超市贵。

加拿大7-ELEVEN热食部分明显没有台湾那样丰富,但也是很重要的一环。加拿大7-ELEVEN没有便当、饭团、微博食品、关东煮或茶叶蛋,但是有披萨、炸鸡、热狗、甜甜圈、松糕等西式食物以及常见水果。

咖啡类饮料品种不少,都是自助服务的,价格也很便宜,一杯1加元多一点,还有各种促销。自带可重用的咖啡杯0.5加元。下载手机应用注册成为免费会员后,不仅可一次性得到一份免费食物或饮料,每月7日和11日还都可以免费领一杯咖啡。对于经常买咖啡的会员,每第7杯咖啡都是免费的。

St. James Cemetery, Toronto, Canada

The Anglican St. James Cemetery is the eternal resting place of many of the prominent families of York and Toronto. Monuments and mausoleums are engraved with the names Jarvis, Ridout, Gooderham, Cawthra, Baldwin and Osler among others. Stories of success and scandal abound. 281 nameless victims of the Irish famine are also buried here.

The entrance to the cemetery is located at the intersection of Bloor and Parliament Streets, overlooking the Don River ravine.

The cemetery opened in July 1844 and is the oldest cemetery in Toronto still in operation. In 1844 most of the people in Toronto lived south of Queen Street West and the cemetery’s present location during that era must have been regarded as being outside city limits.

Chapel of St. James-the-Less in St. James cemetery
The cemetery itself is home to the Chapel of St. James-the-Less which sites atop a knoll at the highest point in the cemetery. In its vigorous, harmonious composition, this small funeral chapel is a splendid example of Victorian Gothic design. Its sense of strength and spirituality is derived from the subtle contrast of its stone walls, enveloping roofs, and soaring spire. Erected in 1860 and opened in 1861, the chapel was designed by Frederick William Cumberland and Storm, one of Toronto’s leading 19th-century architectural firms. It and was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1990.
