Windsor has never been in a better position to grow and diversify.
We are teetering on the edge of recovery. Downtown is still in rough shape. Hopefully the University moving downtown to the Armouries and the old bus station will help, but we'll have to wait and see. That still leaves alot of vacancies downtown and an empty Capital Theatre building. There is also, still a big gaping hole on Ouellette from that fire as well.
Don't get me wrong I like Eddie Francis and I can see that he's trying, but it's been slow. The local media hypes up stories, but you can go out and see for yourself we're not even close to there yet.
If the bridge deal goes through I think that's going to be a big boon to the Windsor area, but as it stands Ontario is still building a road to nowhere at the moment.
There is also the risk that in October when elections hit and if the conservatives knock out the liberals, what they will do with the Ontario energy plan and the FIT program, as they've said they want to make drastic changes or kill the program, poof there goes Windsor's blooming green sector.
I'm just saying that I think we're almost about to turn a corner, but we're going to do it probably slower than the media is saying and not turn as much if a few certain other things don't fall into place.
