these last 2 comments are right on the mark. bravo! I regularly fear that when the money starts rolling our way, we'll just end up like an older version of Mississuaga - malls, big box crap and strip plazas everywhere...why? because we don't have a vision of what we want to be. we're so desperate for any investment that we'll settle for the rotten version instead of holding investors and companies to a high standard by saying "no way are you plopping down more big box stuff at Centre Mall or QEW/Centennial. We have plans and vision already set in place for those lands - mixed use, proper building materials, lots of trees, a great public realm etc..." The way we're going now I really hope that the money doesn't start flowing anytime soon....but the problem with that is the lack of opportunity and investment keeps us in perpetual poverty. City hall needs visionaries (like yourself) and it needs them fast!
