It has nothing to do with faith and it has nothing to do with any of those people.. that's one of the main issues actually, too many people in this city takes things personally.
in those 7 seven years and since those 7 years.. there have been many changes to the city... different mayors, different city councils and yes different change in direction for the city as new people with new ideas come about.
Not too long ago (in relative terms) Developers in the city and the population alike discovered that there was an apetite (demand) for densification and urban condo living.
Now that doesn't mean wall to wall condo towers and that is by no means what we are getting or even close to that.
what we are seeing is densification and condo towers added in trendy (or potentially trendy)neighbourhoods and locations.
I'll say it again .. if they start proposing large scale 30+ stories condo towers in mass in Kanata or Barrhaven etc... i'll be on your side and some heads need to be banged.
But if you're arguing about the gleebe, westboro, hintonburg, little italy, etc... etc... I can't understand any of your rationale.
Who cares that a development plan was done at one point in the past... do you see me yelling and complaining that the GREBER plan was never done as it was supposed to be done... NO and neither are you.. why? because there's a new plan that you liked better that was developed after the GREBER plan.
OMG there will be life and buzz in an urban neighbourhood of a city of 1.4 million population (metro) RUN AND HIDE !!!!!!
