Seen On The Way To Toronto III

The Dixie Mall in Missisauga. What's that all about? There's nothing less Southern-fried, Confederate, or Dixieish than Canada, especially Ontario. It will pain some to hear it, but the name 'Dixie' doesn't really have enough glamor to be worth borrowing. Is this some kind of geographic pun? Missisauga does sound a lot like Mississippi. If so, it wouldn't be the first such pun: Connecticut is a long way (geographically and culturally) from Jack London country, but the University of Connecticut calls its teams the Huskies, because "U Conn" sounds like "Yukon".

Well, it's at the 401 and Dixie Rd. I guess that really doesn't answer much, does it?

Regards, etc...
