Are you even sure you know what racism is? But then again I am for treating all people equally and even that in today's Canada would be considered racist!

It looks like a service road yes, the city will likely fight them to expropriate that land however for the road widening unless a deal is reached behind closed doors.

If its like the service roads off Grant, that would definitely be a bonus. Granted it would impact pedestrian culture and the urban feel, but traffic would be alot less of a nightmare with a service road on the side.

You seem like a dyed in the wool blue Tory, based on your posts, so here's the question - are you not in favour of honouring contracts?

The treaties were legal contracts between the First Nations and the Crown that spelled out, among other things, compensation for European settlers moving onto the land. Those compensations didn't 'fully' take place, so now they have access to land and/or cash in order to do some economic development.

There is no applicability of "I am for treating all people equally" in this context.

On this subject, it always cracks me up that the same people that bitch and moan about the 'burden' that Indigenous people are on white society and who use the tropes that 'we send them so much money, why can't they get on their own two feet like everyone else' will then turn around and complain about the establishment of Indigenous Economic Zones (Urban Reserves).

I mean, pick a lane, buddy.

I'm not sure if that's a service road. Or just designating the land for the widened kenaston blvd. It's a pretty basic sketch that leads to interpretation.

IMO it would seem to me there is no service road, and there will be numerous access points to kenaston.

Cue up the theme song from The Benny Hill Show...

Quote:
The Kapyong Barracks years-long legal saga could again be back in the courts, with the Manitoba Métis Federation asking a federal judge to quash Ottawa's deal this summer to transfer land to First Nations.

"The Métis were just completely ignored," MMF President David Chartrand told the Free Press on Thursday.

"If the Métis are not being treated well, I’m going to react."

The group filed a request in Federal Court a month ago, arguing "all related ancillary decisions and agreements should be quashed or set aside," on the basis that Ottawa ignored Métis rights and the MMF's November 2015 request for consultation.

Last week, the MMF and Ottawa asked the court to put the legal action on hold for six months so the two can instead hold talks.

Such a joke.

^ I dunno, the longer it gets delayed the more faith I have that the land will be sufficiently valuable to warrant a good development. As I've said before, if the site had been redeveloped in the 90s it would have just been a bunch of big boxes along the lines of St. James Street.

Fair point. At the same time, this has stretched out long enough that we are at a point in this city where land values would justify a more solid development. This is frustrating because MMF had 15 years to throw their hat in the ring with the court proceedings and the moment the land was awarded they cry 'not fair we want some too'. Child's play.

Who is responsible for that service road in front of Grant Park? The City? It's gotta be a Top 5 Worst Road in town - and that's saying something! It's been in terrible shape since the 90s and they just keep intermittently patching.
