Yesterday wasn’t quite TIFF, but it was the perfect occasion to get some buzz for a homegrown project before the celebrities arrive. Piers Handling, Dan Aykroyd and Adam Vaughan were on hand for the dedication of Reitman Square, named after Leslie and Clara Reitman, the parents of Ivan (and grandparents of Jason), who once owned a car wash at this site. Ivan, along with his sisters Agi Mandel and Susan Michaels, donated the $22-million plot of land that now houses the Bell Lightbox.
