The relocation of the local branch of the Bank of Nova Scotia from its
spot of 105 years at the corner of Main and Water Streets to the former
Co-op building on Upper Main Street may not be the ruination of the
downtown core, but it won't do it any good was the opinion of many
business owners in Oxford after learning the move had been confirmed.

An old but sometimes troublesome and inconvenient Oxford landmark may
soon be a thing of the past. Council approved a motion to ask CN Rail
to remove the overpass on Water Street.
