I was not being negative but inclusive in my comment above, (sports and recreation for all) and concerned that the waterfront would be unavailable to the many lower income families downtown.
As a despised surburban-ite I come down to the waterfront most weeks, its a destination for us. Recently I brought my grand-daughter for the fishing derby. Many poorer families were there for fun and prizes, it was great!
My concern is that once it is privatised, built on and turned into residences for the elite the general (poorer) populace will be discouraged and unwanted. Who speaks for them?
