i don't care if you are from brantford, hamilton, or timbuktu, you can have an opinion, especially if any provincial or federal money does come through.

that said, i think that WLU is also interested in developing the area, not just the YMCA as you state. (Correct me if I am wrong.)

WLU has been the biggest reason Brantford's downtown has improved from Shitsville to Poopyville. One day maybe it will be Fartsville or even better. But without getting rid of these eysores, there really isn't a chance of that.

The question I always ask is - what is your suggestion? The city expropriated the buildings so they can either rebuild or demolish. I'd like to see a rebuild that stays in character with the history of the area.

Private developers will line up once the demo is complete - even in a city like Brantford, there is money to be made in property, and somebody will take advantage of that.
