No Miss Doll, the truth is that the WeverHub people (and by default their funding agencies) are not vested parents and teachers from Ward 3 -- for they have unilaterally - without broad community consultation gone ahead and endorsed a regional DETOX centre to be created right across the very school they claim to be expanding for their vulnerable kids.

In exchange for annual Christmas hampers, they chose last year to allow hundreds of drug addicts from various communities across the region/province to come to the Sanford/Wever neighbourhood for treatment.

A neighbourhood that was almost on the verge of healing itself after decades of systemic neglect surely did not deserve a "Detox Mall" within its midsts.

If the WeverHub people had the welfare and progress of Kids in mind - they would have consulted the broad community first, before committing such a dastardly unilateral act on the neighbourhood.

Caught like a deer in headlights, the WeverHub people are back peddling furiously and are now claiming that they do not represent the neighbourhood.

Well, their continuing unilateral and totally self-centered support for the tearing down of the Sanford School - exposes their double-speak.

The lack of a basket ball court or a soccer field will not harm these underprivileged kids as much as the lack of principles displayed by the WeverHub people to subvert a community's will.
