Changes to Landsdowne Park seems to be counterproductive to the local scene

CBC News reported a Whole Foods Store opening in the Landsdowne Park, in the center of the Glebe. This part of town being very progressive in local foods no doubt has some serious issues with this US store coming into town. The below article speaks to Amanda Watkins, who is a manager at the nearby Wild Oat bakery, and Stéphane Sauvé, manager of the Glebe Meat Market; both who seem unthreatened by the new store but are disappointed that such a place would be accepted in this area. In my opinion the worst part of it all is that we are pushing the Landsdowne market out to make room for a store that brings in imported goods from the US.
