This project must never be allowed to go ahead. Period. Our homeless problem is bad enough. We don't need any more people living on the streets. Especially at a time like this.

Tenants really live in lala land.

"We're not trying to halt development in the city," said Da Silva, who pays about $925 a month in rent. "We simply want to want to find our place in the city. We don't believe that it's to anybody's benefit that we be tossed out on the streets," he said.

Yeah, these vulnerable tenants are out of their minds eh? /s

Maybe they could include electric and water hook ups under the new section of the Gardiner

But if they're not doing anything productive like speculating on property, flipping condos, running multiple Airbnbs..
If they're not contributing anything to the Skyline then.. what good are they?
Besides, there should be lots of tent space available when the New Gardiner is finished.
