Well, you did claim that:
1) Waterfront Toronto was established in 1999, so if you're telling me that HBS was planned before 1999 when some of those motels were still somewhat active than you're blatantly wrong.
Which makes you blatantly wrong - and as per your own assessment - delusional...
I'm going to ignore the rest of your post simply because you don't know what you're talking about.
The Motel Strip Secondary Plan was approved by Etobicoke City Council in NINETEEN EIGHTY EIGHT (1988) and revised in NINETEEN NINETY SEVEN (1997) a while before Waterfront Toronto appeared on...
1) HBS was 'planned' before Waterfront Toronto existed
2) HBS had secondary plans in place
3) HBS had plans for higher level transit dating back to the late 1980s
4) HBS was planned with midrises
The fact the city couldn't follow its own plans leaves me little doubt WT couldn't have either...
Excuse me, but on what are you making these claims?
I didn't know the exact date of Chinese unification (guess I could have googled) but does that in any way change the message that this state has essentially existed in that capacity since before Christ?
Civil wars, invasions, etc.. Ok? Does...
What does this have to do with Humber Bay Shores? Wildly different economics at play - cannot be compared in the slightest. Otherwise tell me why I'm not seeing an 80 storey office building in Mississauga Centre - I mean they're both 'downtowns' right?
Instead of funding an agency between...
Spoken like a true CNN parrot.
What collapse? The non-Han dynasties ruled over a united China, and shuffled the capitals around. There was no collapse of China - ever. The closest that happened was when the fascist and inhuman Japanese slaughtered millions and carved up the country for...
I think it's very helpful - this is an Empire that hasn't really 'changed' since 350 BC. The last 100 years are the aberration, not the past. Historical inevitability defines today's China.
Everything happen right now is China charting its manifest destiny.
It's hard to be less paranoid when there are so many actions taken against it.
Not to mention lessons learned from the last empire that threatened America's dominance. The Chinese are far, far smarter than that.
Also, I have to disagree with those developments of late. That's just CNN...
I think China is no more or less imperialistic than America when it comes to third party countries.
Otherwise, I agree with the rest. And I strongly believe a fight with China is a fight that America will ultimately lose. The Middle Kingdom has risen.
I really worry about poking China too much.
Russia - well Russia is Russia, they can (and will) be a nightmare for their neighbours, but they don't have their global network anymore. China does, and China is aggressively expanding it. We here in the west don't quite realize how far and deep...
Toronto is strange like that.
Back in the mid 90s, it was one of the few cities in the world with more than one Versace boutique... We had 3 (Hazelton Ave, Bloor St, Queen's Quay Terminal). Then we had 0, now we're back at 2..
