Seems to me that words like 'people's plan', 'liveable' and 'common sense' are being used to mask what's really happening: height NIMBYism.

I don't bemoan anyone's right to dislike tall buildings, although I might suggest not living in the downtown core of a major city if that's the case.

I'm a person, who I think uses common sense in my city-building views and I def want a liveable downtown core...and I want many, many more tall buildings filling our empty lots and parking lots downtown.

If tall buildings automatically equal an unlivable city, then please explain Hamilton's ranking on the world's most livable cities lists vs. Vancouver, Toronto or Calgary with all their towers and skyscrapers???
