Already turning? yes, dowtown is perpetually turing, as it swirls down the drain.

Nothing has been done to help those downtown homeless and jobless wholurk aroudn evry corner in search of change. In fact they now boldy enter shops to ask patrons for money. In a small restaurant yesterday a man came in and sat down at my table in order to ask me for change.
Add to this the obvious drug use and sales, yes Downtown is really picking up! The new cafes and such opening up, many come and go with few exceptions.
Cosmetic changes and an increase in a few more non-impoverished folk living downtown is not enough.
Help for the less fortunate rather than merely an attempt to overwhelm them by turing their neighbourhoods into condos they cannot afford, is what is needed. That and changing the core from a drive thru through way to a vibrant community people will drive, walk and bike TO is what is needed and it is still not happening.
