Blowing a Great Big Bubble A 100-foot-square plastic bubble was inflated yesterday over Balmoral pool, an L-shaped swimming pool on Balmoral Dr. in Bramalea. The $60,000 bubble has taken several months to complete; once it had been anchored to its base, about 20 men took about 20 minutes to inflate it. The Guelph firm that fabricated and erects the bubbles has put up about 40 of them across Canada but this is the first for Bramalea.
