Sorry, Sheri, but I can't see your comments as anything other than NIMBY.

I support the waterfront location, but I sympathize with Sheri. She is correct that there was a public process that designated these lands as residential. Processes like these need to be respected and should not be lightly shoved aside. She has every right to defend the public planning process in her neighbourhood without being labelled a NIMBY. That term is used far too carelessly to demonize those we disagree with (think Connaught). Let's use a little more caution before we toss out the 'N' word. It just raises the temperature in discussions like this, without illuminating anything.
