    Allan Gardens Revitalization Plan

    ... and this disgusting manipulative trolling is supported by the moderators here. Great. I'm done with UT. The discourse has reached new lows.

    Allan Gardens Revitalization Plan

    That's what you take issue with? I've offered some ideas for this park. Disagree if you like but Skeezix has called me 'disingenuous' at least four times, 'patronizing' and 'appalling' etc. He's made some pretty offensive accusations... and yes, accusing a poster of being 'elitist' is...

    Allan Gardens Revitalization Plan

    There are many instances where noisy or destructive (to plants/habitat etc) activities are limited, not just dogs. Clearly you equate 'restrictions' with exclusions, and this is a fundamental flaw in your logic. The Toronto parks system has all kinds of restrictions, literally pages and pages...

    You wrote, and I quote... Based on that it is not a stretch to extrapolate that you are writing from there, that along with your relentless preaching about Asia. To be fair Lenser I do feel there was a certain spirit of optimism and ambition in Toronto during the post-war era and right up...

    Allan Gardens Revitalization Plan

    Well, I understand that people need and want to walk their dogs... and want to enjoy walking their dogs. This is a great thing. It just requires an appropriate space. It sounds like Allan Gardens has been a great location for this. I'm just arguing that perhaps there are some better uses for...

    Just to chime in here, as an adjunct to the Allan Gardens discussion... First of all - before Skeezix starts sharpening the tines on his pitchfork - let me state clearly that this project is a huge improvement, and a community benefit and awesome in many many ways... However, I do feel it is...

    Are you even in Toronto? ... and how are asian cities with super-tall/horrible pedestrian realm combinations of any relevance to Yonge and Bloor?

    Allan Gardens Revitalization Plan

    I'm only suggesting that a further revitalized park, elevated to make this an important heritage site and a city-wide draw, would improve the neighbourhood even more. The heritage infrastructure here is pretty significant right? This isn't an 'anti-dog' or 'anti-dog walker' assessment. I"m...

    The history of Allan Gardens predates 2008, significantly. It is troubling that you are weighing in so vehemently about this without an appreciation of the heritage value. This isn't surprising though. The city as a whole has ignored the heritage value of this site, which is why it is in the...

    The ESB is just about the most famous and iconic skyscraper ever. That's a pretty tough standard to live up to. I get your point though.

    No it isn't. We already agreed that dogs are not people. Yet you are suggesting that restrictions on people equates to restrictions on people-with-their-pets. It doesn't. The very foundation of your argument falls apart here. The rest of the debate is moot. See above. People are not...

    Just where are you travelling to? I can't imagine anyone with credibility assessing Toronto's stature based on building heights. Besides, have they ever heard of the CN Tower? You know, tallest structure in the world for decades.

    It kinda is. This would be an entirely different issue if we were talking about banning kids. The comparison isn't justified, in other words. That's ok. There are plenty of other parks for them to enjoy in the way they want to enjoy them. Again, if this were a park-wide policy issue I...

    The PCs did bring a DRL to the table though, which now seems to be acknowledged as the number one pressing transit requirement for the city and region... so there's that. Have the Liberals even agreed to a DRL yet? Remember this whole discussion started with somebody's comment that Toronto...

    I'm not sure the conservatives would deliver anything better, to be honest. The point is that blind partisanship doesn't work for the city, not provincially and not federally. We are better off having two parties vying for our votes.

    Allan Gardens Revitalization Plan

    Yeah, I have a problem with equating children to dogs (oh brother!)... and banning dogs from a place doesn't stop dog-owners from enjoying a place. They can leave the pooch at home!! You can still enjoy the opera without trotting out Fido, for example. This would be more of an issue if it was...

    This will be good for 20 years of power? No. This is a huge shortfall over where we need to be. We still do not have commitments for where we need to be.
