Wilson's great but not perfect. When there was a ot of change bubbling along a few years ago, he described the downtown's golden prospects: "A bold new presence downtown from Mac, the return of the Connaught, plus we keep the Taj Mahal. That's a triple. Get the Lister done and call it a home run." By the time the Connaught public housing deal broke, he was happy to cast the consortium's public housing end run in the rosiest possible light, comparing the project favourably to the tower at Main and Hess (ground-floor tenants: pharmacy, convenience store, hair salon, threadbare tavern and government office), hardly the sort of inspiring fixture you'd want as a spur for core revival.
