  1. This morning hubby and I decided to walk inside of St. Laurent Shopping Centre before going out to Wal Mart and we didn’t venture out to the park in this weather. In one of the hallways near Sears the roof is leaking, here in my building the laundry room is closed – flooding, where my daughter works the ceiling leaks when there is heavy rain. Some of the streets are flooded like on St. Laurent B
