Oh, The Telegram website has some of the most negative commenters you'll ever encounter - as do many media websites. Don't worry about those. I guarantee there won't be a positive comment unless one of you write it, ha!

Nice letter Signal.

Hmm, as for the 1 comment I thought it could be interpreted as a positive one, he could be saying - a city of a million with only sprawl would be a terrible thing.

Comment sections on news websites are usually nothing short of a bitch-fest.

That was a wonderful letter! And yeah, comments are rarely positive on news articles, so don't take any of the comments to heart. The story could be "Accountant saves infant from blazing inferno" and people would still comment negatively. (mostly because they are all old retired peple with nothing better to do with their time than be bitter.

But, great letter! I believe this project will go ahead as proposed and it will hopefully be the first of many more to come!

Looks like Signal's letter to the editor got another comment. This one reads

"Amen, brother! I agree 100%. Well said. Bravo. Couldn't have said it any better myself. It's time we stop looking into the past and start wisely planning for the future."

But seeing how it was posted by JEDDY, it's more like your mom telling you you're the best hahaha.

Oh well, any kind of support is good, no matter how close to home it comes from!

Hey now, Let's not jump to conclusions! There could be more than one development-enthusiast who goes by the name "Jeddy" in this city of 200k... right??

An article on the project, a few wrong facts, ie that Tiffany Towers will be the tallest in the province. But an interesting detail was released, the two towers will combine for 432 units! Great stuff.

Here's the link: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/newfou...owers-308.html
