And what kind of jobs are ocming from these developments for the people, nothing but low wage, retail jobs, that do not provide benefits, forget pensions. This does nothing for the community at large to alleviate the growing poverty issue.

I find it disgusting that only the developers and their money have a say, and not the people in the community at large. This is not a democratic society.

This is what is wrong when the people themselves have no input into their neighbourhoods.

But you can bet that those in city hall, will have their hands out asking for more money, more perks, more everything, while the rest of the community lives and struggles in poverty.

For shame, on all of you, that forget the families that struggle. Think you will get empathy from those in the castle, NOT, they could care less if you cannot pay your rent, if you cannot afford to buy food. Nope, they will direct you to many of the agencies that will stomp on your rights as a human and as an worker.
