Jan Lou sent me this documentary I had no idea about..What is The Lost Highway? It’s a 40 kilometre stretch of the Trans-Canada Highway in eastern Ontario and part of Highway 7 — a road that joins Toronto, Canada’s biggest city, to Ottawa, the nation’s capital. But why Lost Highway? Because it’s a road flanked by failed businesses and abandoned properties where people gave it their all and then gave it up for good. But what happened? And why did it happen here? And who, despite the hardship, has remained?
