The global membership discusses development news and construction activity on projects from around the world, alongside discussions on urban design, architecture, transportation and many other topics. SkyscraperPage.com also features unique skyscraper diagrams, a database of construction activity, and publishes popular skyscraper posters.
I saw it and 5 pages in 14 months. I read many of them and at certain times the topic goes off on a regional tangent.
I am referring to the lack of enthusiasm. The indifference or the reaction to the tennis match politics via the constant commercials on the TV.
I have seen longer threads on trivial items. This forum is a small representation of the public as like the silent majority of voters some people would love to provide an opinion but either are too busy with job, family and general household chores or are not computer savvy.
For example this is the harvest season and many farmer's are more concerned with bringing in the crop, maintenance of equipment and maybe rest.
There is more concern over if the Leafs will make the play-offs or the Blue Jays judging from conversation at the coffee shops, taverns or barber shops. There was a time when politics were important.
I am concerned about Windsor's economy first and foremost, Hudak killing the green industry in Ontario concerns me, so I feel I should vote Liberal because the green energy sector is keeping Windsor afloat right now. That's what that election has come down to for me, no other issue other than our local economy is of as much as a concern.
I agree with you Symz, the conservatives will kill the green energy act and that's just bad for Windsor. I don't love the liberals, but they've done so much for our city that I feel they deserve my vote. To kill the green energy act would ruin Ontario's reputation around the globe, and send us back in time when other regions are moving forward and embracing clean energy.
You mention the regional 'tangents' but voting in Ontario provincial elections often seems to come down to regional issues. The parties themselves try to gain the votes from the GTA and the other regions do what they think is best for themselves. I'm also voting Liberal because it's the best party for Windsor.
