Thomas A Beckett >> "east of James to perhaps Mary Street and north of King to Cannon"

Jason >> "Think John/King William all the way over to Mary/Cannon area"

No disrespect meant, but those of us who actually live in this neighbourhood might not be very happy about having our houses expropriated for someone's utopian scheme. And the "mega parking lot district" is entirely south of Wilson, save for the single block bounded by Wilson, Cannon, Hughson, and John. Mary and Catharine Streets north of Wilson retain most of their original housing stock.

Check the google map of this area if you don't believe me.

I also suspect that Tregunno Seeds (Catharine St.), Townsview Lifecare (Mary), the Good Shepherd Centre (Mary), and the Downtown Mosque (Wilson) -- among others -- wouldn't be impressed by this plan.

I imagine that Jason just didn't choose his words very carefully. As for Thomas A Beckett: I'm not planning to tear down your house, and I'd appreciate it if you would show me the same courtesy.
