What exactly is offensive about this:

"Talk to people (Aboriginal, newcomer, low-income) who probably aren’t showing up in large numbers at events."

Have you seen the cultural make-up of our council committees, the talking heads, the heads of our City departments, the elected councillors, even the 'cultural and socio-economic' make-up of the writers on the new urban rag: Urbanicity? Do you see any talking head from these groups on Cable 14?

Do you see any Aboriginal, newcomer, low-income on any of these groups?

This is a deeply honest and sincere question that is not intended to inflame any repressed sentiments in our city. It is a fact. Please challenge it in a respectful manner if you can.

There are many more valid reasons to shut down this site. But "this" is not one of them by any stretch of imagination.

Thank You,

Mahesh P. Butani
