Well, I'm at work, so that's not going to work, and I'm one of those old dinosaurs that refuses to switch to digital until they pry my analog cable out of my cold dead hands But nice to know it's yet another reason to maybe upgrade before then. I still lament the day they took NASA TV off the analog spectrum.

I can't make it down until 15:30 or so, anyone think I'll still be able to get in the "in-favour" line?

Garth Atkinson of the CAA laying the smackdown on council for never doing anything about the runway tunnel, even after writing them and coming to council for the last 7 years to tell them this will be happening.

Is it just me or are the people who just want to see the airport tunnel just getting into the "in-favour" line, or did council schedule some time at the start specifically for the tunnel issue?

I would rather have them in the 'in-favour' line rather than the anti line. It is the difference of baby or the bath water. It frames the first day of council as about Airport Trail instead of as density, which is a great thing.

Edit: Was the tunnel added back in at CPC? If so, that is great. Explains why they are in favour.

I was just unsure if there was time officially allotted in the agenda specifically for this issue is all. I agree with your statement above about it being better to have them in the "for" line and the optics of having it be about the airport tunnel rather than density. I still frown upon people just getting in that line in order to go earlier though when really they just care about one specific issue - the airport tunnel.

I really wish the pro speakers would mention that quite a few of us are perfectly happy having kids and staying in the inner city and even beltline in the future.

I also wish some of these speakers could go toe to toe with McIver and not get baited into him putting words in their mouths.

I really wish I could take the time to be able to go down and speak, I'm not speaking highly of myself but I could twist the words and shoot right back at McIver. It is so obvious to see the bait in his questions, I hate how these speakers fall for it.

Who's the old guy with the bad comb-over? He has fired out baited questions as well, and man, he and McIver suck. Can I safely assume they are both anti-planit and will be voting against the resolution?

I think you mean Chabot, the other very vocal older alderman is Gord "Ballbuster" Lowe (white hair and beard). He is usually a pretty good guy when it comes to questioning, he was excellent during the public hearing for the Brentwood TOD.

The other comb-over, Hodges isn't there. He must have a serious health issue for him not to be there.

Yeah! Must be Chabot. Lowe seems fair with his questions, he seems to truly want honest answers, not be leading the question to an "aha, gotcha" like Chabot and McIver.

I belive Frinkprof was trying to make it down, and Fusili is there too if I recall correctly.

I sent in a letter of support for PlanIt since I was unable to be there.

One of these days I'll make it down and give 'em the Bigtime show

...and the proceedings are getting hijacked by the airport tunnel crowd again.

Can you say hijack and mention the airport in the same sentence?
