I take personal affront to your suggestion.
You could become one of our champions, but it would require to move Downtown and live among us. In fact I have stridently opposed the Police position that a development freeze be brought to the Hess Village area. On March 2nd a new GO train will be added to the morning Hamilton to Toronto schedule, departing at 7:17 a.m. The Metrolinx Final report ensures that a James Street North Gateway Station will commence service within 5 years. A new 6,000 square foot Beasley Community Centre will be built in conjucntion with a new Dr. Davey School at Wilson and Ferguson. We have had over $350,000 dollars accessed in our Lead Service Replacement Loans program that allows owners of modest older homes to get the work done and pay back on their water bill over ten years, thus making it affordable, and sustainable. Since it's a loans program the original fund is constantly replenished. We just saw completion of the once totally derelict Victoria Hall and MacKay buildings...nationally designated heritage once given up for dead. The units are now almost fully rented, and the Chinese investors are now looking for new opportunities Downtown. The buses will be leaving Gore Park soon, to a "hybrid" terminal design...some to Hunter Street Go Station for better connectivity, some to a redesigned MacNab. This was all my initiative, and saves $10 million or more on what had been proposed by staff. I could go on, but I'm saddened that you are unaware of what I have been championing. It does however follow the kind of smugness that typically appears in these kinds of blog sites.
