Curiouser and curiouser.

Somebody really wants an East Mountain site. A lot. This happened fairly recently - otherwise they would have played the Ti-Cat card earlier and would have attempted to rig the Future Fund a little better. Whether it's a play for the election, interest in the west harbour lands (something Torontoesque perhaps?), or simply more planned East-Mountain subdivisions. Whatever it is, there's something we're not hearing yet.

I've seen this kind of thing often enough - there's always some sort of clever backroom deal. Like the way the Spectator ran a big article the day AFTER DiIanni was elected about the planned billion-dollar suburb DeSantis was planning to put on the East Mountain. One of the headlines was "Expressway was the lynchpin". Funny how there was little of such coverage before the election, even though we continually pointed it out. Saw it on the West Coast, too, with Olympic-related highway developments which just happened to open up acres of forested mountain owned by a local development company who planned to build $1-3 million mansions there. And though the local Liberal MLA had won her seat based on opposition to cutting the highway through the mountain, she quickly flip-flopped when she got into office. Her husband, it turned out, was one of the local heads of that same development company.

Development is a shady game. Look at Detriot and all the millions which have been made by burning down homes.
