Back in August, Terry Cooke had some things to say:

Centre Mall revamp: This neighbourhood surely deserves better http://thespec.com/News/Discover/article...

The more notably prophetic words from Cooke's pen denoted our champion, our councilor and friend:

"Ward 4 Councillor Sam Merulla has been a champion of the project and is unapologetic to its critics. He points to skyrocketing property values in the area and the rejuvenation of Ottawa Street as direct byproducts of Redcliffe's commitment to invest $120 million in the area.

Merulla also cites the conversion of several depressed neighbouring apartment buildings into condos as evidence that redevelopment is fuelling a local economic renaissance, saying: "I was not prepared to jeopardize the largest urban redevelopment project in Canada over a few aesthetic concerns"."

I'm excited about the skyrockets in flight and the aftergloom delight. Please allow "the largest urban redevelopment project in Canada" time to materialize before passing judgment. It'll be interesting to see how Redcliffe manages snow removal.

Ottawa Street North, a great place for both farmers and Queens.
