And although there’ll be a cop directing traffic on Gordon Street, Peter Van Dunien of the Salvation Army said there’ll be heavy traffic in that area.

Van Dunien told CJOY News that more than 1,000 cars are expected to go in and out of the property within a four-hour window.

That means there’ll be heavy traffic on Gordon, from Edinburgh and past Arkell Road.

The program goes until noon.
