yes, there were some ugly moments in this debate. Much of the fuel came from the fact that the city had just established the no infamous radial separation bylaw and this project fell within the boundary of 3 other care facilities.

Once it became apparent that this project was happening whether folks liked it or not, the neighbourhood got working with the Good Shepherd and the end result is a fantastic addition to our neighbourhood...where tonight's meeting will be held, in fact. The treed courtyard and public walkways were concessions the Good Shepherd were willing to make at the request of the neighbourhood.

One can't help but wonder if more cooperation would have taken place right from the start if not for the city's radial separation rules which promised to keep another care facility out, and fuelled much of the neighbourhood anger as folks felt the city was breaking their own rules.
