I really wonder what kind of mental gymnastics area residents will do as these mega proposals around the station grow legs.

Hey, you vociferously fought against relocating the GO station well here you go - increased density and the destruction of Mimico coming right up.

Yikes, that's unfortunate. Not only is the design bad, the massing is overbearing for what amounts to a village (Mimico).

I see it now... It's like a smart centre sprouted towers.

The city's plan contemplates 10-storey midrises for these sites. That should be respected.

Then again this is another sleezy DiCiano/Grimes affair. I'm sure there's some ombudsman-friendly conversations going on.

You can't expect to wield supreme executive power just 'cause some
watery tart threw a sword at you!!

Come and see the corruption inherent
in the system! HELP, HELP, I'M BEING REPRESSED!
Did you miss the recent news about those councillors and Dunpar or should I be googling for you?
