I smell a little political grandstanding.

I didn't really get a sense that people on RTH were belittling the poor. Of course, there were some exceptions. Not enough to justify this sort of 'sit in the corner for 10 minutes' timeout overtone.

People are venting their frustrations. This is what RTH is for.

The bleeding hearts have their place. The world wouldn't be as sound without these mentalities. But behind all goodwill, including humanitarian aid, there is a plan, a scheme, a methodology to fixing the problem. Rooms where people don't get spiraled into woes, or the degrade of contributions by soe. And instead look at it systematically and progressively. A few comments aside, I felt that here at RTH.

As I've mentioned before, I come from a pretty impoverished background. For 19 years of my life, I was very close the poorest of poor. My family was known to Food Banks, "geared-to-income-housing", shelters, etc. With all experiences in life, you're granted to speak on those experiences educated and informed. As such, I feel I can speak not for the people, but the end result.

The end result in the Connaught being converted to "mixed" (more probable: most low-income) housing is salt on a wound.

For some, that might spell out "hate" towards the poor. I don't think it does. I think it actually spells out the opposite.

We don't want poor people. Does that mean the entity of the poor person? Or the problem behind the poverty? I think on RTH it is relatively clear which is which.
