One of the most expensive houses in Canada -- a waterfront Uplands home listed for sale a year ago at more than $28 million -- is now a consulate for St. Kitts and Nevis, two lush Caribbean Islands.

The 15,900-square-foot house, called Sweet Pea, is set on a hectare of land with more than 450 metres of waterfront. The house at 3195 Humber Rd. has seven bedrooms, an indoor swimming pool and spa, doors covered in gold leaf, manicured grounds, a desalination plant and an enhanced security system that slides shutters over windows at the touch of a button.

Whatever you do, do it to the purpose; do it thoroughly, not superficially. Go to the bottom of things. Any thing half done, or half known, is in my mind, neither done nor known at all. Nay, worse, for it often misleads.

The property is owned by the Axelrods, not the Kittitian gov't. Honorary Consul arrangement it would seem.

Honorary Consul. No big deal.

I am guessing this is in Toronto.
The owner is probably the Honorary Consul Gen.
So what?

Journalists just looking for ting again.
