Well I don't speak for others in the North End, but I'm not interested in opposing things for the sake of opposing.

I read the staff report on the Tivoli ... it's pretty damning. For Councillor Farr to basically mow down Jason Thorne and PED is the most troubling aspect of this whole affair.

The focus is entirely on the wrong aspects of the file. This isn't about whether we want intensification and development in the core or West Harbour. Most of us, myself included, do. There are lots of ways to make something work on this parcel, but the current proposal isn't it. Not all proposals are good and not all intensification produces good urbanism. Of course, it's all academic now ... the die has been cast and we'll get to debate the results later.

The big picture is what message did Councillor Farr and his colleagues send to concerned residents, neighbourhood associations, local businesses, and developers?

Basically this is a gift to the property owner. It won't go unnoticed.
