Great article Jason,
Just a clarification, though it is in the east end of Toronto, the area is actually called the West Don Lands. Here is a link to some great references to what is happening in the West Don Lands area of Toronto - http://www.waterfrontoronto.ca/explore_projects2/west_don_lands/river_city_development

We should also learn from the mistakes Toronto also made with their waterfront and ensure that we do not get a wall of condos/buildings blocking the community to the waterfront. It is great what Waterfront Toronto is doing with the area and how they are trying to revitalize the area and make it more community focused, with a sustainability bend. Oddly, the agency formed under the leadership of two very conservative politicians and one of Canada's greatest Prime Minister.

Hamilton's waterfront is a gem, and unique in its own right. I hope we can do what we can to keep the polish on this gem gleaming and ensure that it will always sparkle. Polish it, rub it, clean it and scrub it, even cut it and manipulate it...the ensure the essence of the gem does not get compromised.
