I dare not argue the need to revitalization and investment in all neighbourhoods of town. But Barbara and Gary went about it wrong and I cannot let them represent me personally. They tried to stretch the law and instead of working with the city when they acted first in bad faith. Countless other groups in town have made the costly accessible bathroom renovations, had liquor licenses and regular inspections, parking at least considered for their intended use (reasonable law or not) and so on. These are services the city must provide. I don't think this anarchistic approach is at all democratic. What if hospitals could act in the same way? Their needs are dire. Oh they're making a point. I see.

An additional bone to pick is that this was gentrification right proper. Gary has been cruel and invasive with his photography of sex workers. If this were a casino would we all be thinking the same way?
