I find the lack of objectivity by people who are biased in favour of artists a bit unsettling. The comparisons to neighbourhoods in Toronto are willfully ignorant as the North End had it's residents first and they are nowhere near as serviced by transit or any particular commercial corridor with mixed use like you'd find along Queen St. There is no University of Toronto in proximity to The Pearl Factory. It's a different culture of residents and they are to be respected. These are their homes. I like bikes and art and music shows as much as the next guy. But if some people plunked down in my neighbourhood without my input and had the Budos Band playing when I had to work in the morning... I'd be unhappy. To want to dictate the rules of how my community is built after the fact... that's pretty jerky. This really does smack of elitism and it turns my stomach.
