""I can live with a few skanks kicking around here and there." I read that other article too quickly-- a line like that doesn't belong anywhere in this debate.

Thanks for pointing it out, Adrian-- it needed to be said.

My own concern, having been (in another city) a support worker for intellectually handicapped individuals who were independent enough to live on their own in similar apartments, has always been about the suitability of the location itself for some who would definitely do better elsewhere. Let people who can make the choice to live downtown in complete freedom and who have the wherewithal to avoid the pitfalls surrounding the Connaught be the pioneers here. Give people who need a decent place to live somewhere that's already nice.
