So here's an interesting article detailing the divide created by the ice district construction... they're rounding up the rubbies on the "good" side of the downtown and transporting them over to the "bad" side of downtown in an attempt to get a handle on crime and disorder in the downtown area, obviously trying to make it look cleaner and friendlier.

Around 10 p.m. on a recent autumn evening, an obviously intoxicated man stumbled along 109th Street, then sat on a ledge outside Hudsons Canada's Pub.

Three police officers on the Jasper Avenue beat team instantly approached the man.

"What are you doing over here?" Const. Marty Franco asked. "You can't be round here. You know that. You're drunk."

The man mumbled that he was looking for the Hope Mission.

Franco told him he was going in the wrong direction, and called for a police van to transport the man north of Rogers Place.

"That's a prime example of some of the clientele that we get that venture over here," Franco said. "That gentleman was absolutely and completely intoxicated. So he doesn't belong over here with these good people, walking around intoxicated.

Short term pain for long term gain
