Who in their right mind would go to the West Harbourfront to watch a fireworks (or a Cat's game?)
You cannot "get there" from here.
I used to like Mayor Fred, but am being swayed to the contrary of late...Burlington Street is an emparassment...just knocks the shocks off your car...that "Rheem" site is both an eyesore and impossible to redevelop to anyrging accessible or worthwhile.
Relocating to Confederation Park or the Mountain (via the Red Hill) would be much smarter. Okay, the Mountain site would expose the idiocy of the Red Hill plan, and how the "Linc" is screwed up and umpteen years out of date, and so the QEW is the only other viable course. Our unimaginative mayor and "council" in their lust for dollars wants to start charging for parking in downtown, plus Stoney Creek, Dundas and so on..if the downtown core of "Hamilton" cannot support itself...why should anyone else?
I have "words" for this Rexall clown out of Edmonton as well...he just does not "get it" nor does our Mayor or Aldermen...lets elect someone else...
