COVID-19 pandemic.Downtown staple Nathan Detroit’s Sandwich Pad will be closing for good later this month after more than four decades in business.The eatery, located in the underground beneath the Fairmont Hotel and the Richardson building, said much of its business comes from downtown workers — a group that hasn’t fully rebounded since the pandemic began.Brenlea Yamron, who runs Nathan Detroit’s with her sister Karen after taking over from their late father 20 years ago, told 680 CJOB’s The Start that the outpouring of support from the public is making the tough decision a little easier.“It’s hard, but we are so enjoying all that Nathan’s has given our family,” Yamron said.“We’re so incredibly overwhelmed by the people out there.

We are lovers of Winnipeg, we are promoters of Winnipeg — we’ve all raised our families in Winnipeg.“Winnipeg … man, are you making us proud right now.”Yamron said that while the closure will give their mother, Fraydel, the opportunity to finally retire after 40+ years, the future remains unwritten for the sisters.“My sister and I are definitely way too young to retire, so we’re going to be looking for something else,” she said.“Whatever it’ll be, we’ll enjoy hopefully a little time off and then start looking — but it will definitely be in Winnipeg.”The restaurant will be making an announcement in the near future about the plans for Nathan Detroit’s final days.The president of the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce says it’s a simple fact that businesses like Nathan Detroit’s need more people downtown in order to stay open, and that as more and more businesses take on debt to make it through, many have reached their limit.

India Following China Satellite Tracking Vessel’s Visit To Sri Lanka Port
COLOMBO (News 1st); India's defence and security establishment is closely following the planned visit of a Chinese space and satellite tracking research vessel to the Hambantota Port next week, sources familiar with the development said on Monday.There are apprehensions about the possibility of the vessel's tracking systems attempting to snoop on Indian installations while being on their way to the Sri Lankan port.People familiar with the development said though the Chinese vessel 'Yuan Wang 5' is not a military platform, the visit could also be a precursor to similar forays by Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) ships to the island nation."It is a development that could have implications for India's security interests and we are keenly monitoring the proposed visit," said one of the people cited above.The Chinese ship is reportedly visiting Hambantota Port from August 11 to 17, weeks after Sri Lanka witnessed a major political turmoil following massive mass protests over the country's worst economic crisis in decades.It is learned that the Indian Navy would closely follow the journey as well as the stay of the ship in Sri Lankan waters.The ties between India and Sri Lanka had come under strain after Colombo permitted a Chinese nuclear-powered submarine to dock in one of its ports in 2014. It is understood that India has already apprised Sri Lanka about its concerns over the proposed visit of the Chinese vessel to the Hambantota Port.
