great post Dundurn. Downtown residents all feel your pain. This is disgusting to sit back and watch all of our resources go into opening up land for 'booming' suburban areas while the real city rots all around us. You would think they've heard of Buffalo or Detroit or Hartford and learn what happens when booming, growing suburbs ring a hallowed out, neglected city centre - NOTHING. The city just dies. And to think, our council and taxmoney is enabling this death. That's what makes it all the more frustrating. We have ample resources to rebuild this city - Detroit and Buffalo would kill to be in our financial shape - and we're squandering it all blindly as if all of those emptied out US cities never happened, and someone we can make all the wrong choices yet get better results.
