HELL NO! Dark, grey spandrel is going up on Paintbox, with light grey trim on the windows. Every single building in Regent Park, is now covered with grey spandrel. I bloody well hate it! Why call a building "Paintbox" and decorate it with a colourful roof, then cover it with ugly grey spandrel? I don't get it.
As per a recent meeting with Daniels and the residents of 1 / 25 Cole, Daniels' LEED buildings are apparently a big flop. The people at 1 / 25 Cole are freaking out about organic waste disposal requirements for LEED certification making their buildings reek of garbage all the time, and Daniels has been 'studying' the situation for the last year and a half without remedying the stench, meaning, they're buying time in order to get Paintbox sold out or whatnot. All their LEED buildings in this development are going to come back to bite them.
Every now and then I run into people who go on and on about refugees and how they're ruining our country. I've never really understood it other than as some form of muted xenophobia, considering that I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between refugees and just regular immigrants. From what I understand, Canada has signed international treaties that obligate us to accept refugees; it's just a responsibility we need to accept if we want to be a participant on the world stage.
