No- this is just the tax rebate info- the Asbestos money is not included in these figures- so in terms of the dollar amount that the Connaught has contributed to the City's coffers, you can subtract that amount.

I know plenty of people doing good projects in the downtown core that do not receive these kinds of subsidies- they keep their nose to the grindstone and don't get this sort of help.

I had a promising meeting with By-Law Staff today, and I'm convinced we've made real progress on the issue- it looks like I may be able to turn my attention to some other issues now, specifically this rebate. Many people (including members of City staff) agree that this policy makes no sense, and I think a very good case can be made to change it.

We should form a group to start lobbying the province to change the policy- I'll be sending a letter to my MPP immediately to see how we can make an impact on this issue.
