Well, it looks like it's closing time for Big Red's diner at the ever-shrinking Toronto Sun.
Employees in the Sun's ground floor cafeteria learned Friday their contract will not be renewed.
Employees from all departments mingled there during coffee breaks, dined there for breakfast, lunch and dinner, enjoyed smoke breaks (until smoking was banned in the building.) Visiting VIPs and celebrities were occasionally interviewed there over coffee.
Ed Asner dropped in during his Lou Grant stint as Sun city editor.
While some people might say it's just a cafeteria, Toronto Sun Family members fondly remember it as one of the many thank yous to staff from Big Red.
So another link to the Sun's glory days bites the dust.
Posting a For Sale sign after Quebecor's new printing plant in Rexdale makes the presses at 333 King Street East obsolete is all but a done deal.
Merge the Sun and 24 Hours and the extreme makeover will be complete.
Speaking of skunks . . .
