While it is heartening to see a well-thought-out project proposal being warmly received by the affected community, it really has more to do with welcoming infrastructure enhancements than a lack of NIMBY attiude in Strathcona. After all, this is the neighbourhood that has fought Alan Wittle and the Good Shepherd tooth-and-nail to try and prevent construction of much-needed transitional housing for women at the former Loretto Academy site. The stalling tactics employed by the likes of Mark Volterman have delayed these plans for years, and the sole driving force of these tactics is to keep the housing for women escaping abuse out of the Strathcona neighbourhood. Surely it doesn't get much more NIMBY than that.
