Two decades ago, nobody would have visited this grimy stretch for fun — unless their version of fun was buying a used car or visiting a storage facility.

Mai has lived in Toronto since 2006. Before that, she lived in Winnipeg, Manitoba; Vancouver, B.C.; and Halifax, Nova Scotia — which has kept her from developing the center-of-the-universe complex that Torontonians sometimes get.
