the Inc has been around for 30+ years. I don't think we need to worry about them becoming a 'black hole'. So far, basically everything we've seen happen on James North has been grassroots, community-led (which is how it should happen). This is the first time (that I'm aware of) that a group has needed a favour from city hall (the money is already agreed upon, just the delivery from the feds was holding it up) in this district. And not surprisingly, city hall says no. You want to see hundreds of millions of city dollars invested into a black hole check the debt-producing suburban sprawl we've been subsidizing for years (and continue to do so today). Seems to me that if you're too grassroots, or not quite corporate enough the city doesn't bend. The AGH can get millions, but not the artist-run centre up the street??? I don't get it. The AGH deserved their money and the Inc. deserved theirs too.
