You paint too many of your wins as losses because you didn't get exactly what you want Ryan.

Urban stadium instead of suburban... win for you, perceived by you as a loss. 30 km/h speed limits established in James N. neighbourhood (except on 2 main arteries) win for you, perceived by you as a loss. Facades to be maintained on Gore building... win for you, again perceived by you as a loss.

The glass is half-empty routine is getting a little tired. If you don't claim these things as wins, it is your loss. People will continue to sit back and say "Well what does the RTH crowd do but complain". If you don't take credit for those positive changes and quit presenting them as negatives don't expect anyone else to give you the credit.

You should be proud to say you helped prevent a suburban stadium from being built but instead you can't see past the fact you didn't get exactly what you wanted to see that you got most of what you wanted.

You need to celebrate your little wins more and tone down the negative vibe a bit. This city isn't all doom and gloom. In fact it is pretty cool. Good restaurants, good book stores, good record stores, galleries, cafes, a respected college and university and nature at our doorstep from botanical gardens to beaches. Perhaps too much complaining about what way traffic flows may be distracting you from some of these very positive things?
