No Yuppies in Leslieville

No Yuppies in Leslieville Makes First Strike?

Did Studio We just become the first victim of Anti-Yuppy sentiment in Leslieville? Over the weekend, the clothing boutique not far from the now infamous Duke of York had one of its windows smashed. Area businesses fear that it could be related to the recent No yuppies in Leslieville postering campaign.

Personally, I have my doubts. While the posters did call for the smashing of windows at high-end stores in the area, I've seen far too much broken glass on Queen Street over the years to definitively make a connection here.

But that's not to say that area residents and businesses aren't worried, many of which have been talking up the issue on the Leslieville Facebook group. One local business owner wrote blogTO expressing concern, adding "we need more police presence for the shops".
