Is Toronto’s Greektown becoming less Greek?

From the looks of it, Danforth, Toronto’s Greektown is gradually becoming less Greek.
The businesses that are closing down are disproportionately Greek ones, many of which were independent and family-owned. The main reason being that the rents are just too high.
“When it gets so high, only the big chains can afford to move in. But I have noticed things changing, especially in the past two years,” a woman behind the counter at Toronto’s Athena Bakery says.
According to shop owner Chris Collins: “I think the issue is threefold, one: the rents are insanely high, two: many of the older businesses owners are retiring and their kids don’t want to take over  and three: the Danforth residential aspect is changing.”
