Scarborough, June 01, 2017: A Hindu temple in Scarborough, Canada is allowed to continue services in a Birchmount Road warehouse until its permanent home is rebuilt, the Ontario Municipal Board has decided.

The city of Toronto shut down Canada Kanthaswamy Temple Society’s use of 1380 Birchmount last November by issuing an unsafe building order banning mass gathering in the building, which includes worship, recreation and classroom teaching.

The society and the property’s manager, Doverhold Investments, were denied an appeal to allow worship there for up to three years.

A temple is being constructed by the society at 733 Birchmount, and the construction would be finished by March 31, 2018.

In a decision issued on May 15, board member David Lanthier said the short length of stay — 11 months — “factors significantly” in his conclusion the changes should be allowed.

He further said, the building should be fully available for industrial use in the Toronto’s employment areas.

Scarborough Centre Coun, Michael Thompson, said he’s not happy with the decision and described it as a compromise. “The place has not been altered dramatically,” he added last week.

With more than 20 million paying users in the US, Apple Music has just taken the lead over its rival Spotify in an all-important market, the media reported.

Spotify still leads outside of the US, tallying 75 million subscribers as part of its first earnings report in May.

“The source, a US-based, major distributor, shared a report detailing the subscriber tallies of several streaming music services, including Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, and Sirius XM. That report now ranks Apple Music as first in the US, at least among primarily on-demand music streaming services,” the Digital Music News recently reported.
