Africville reparation, really?!

Posted on Sun, Feb 21, 2010 at 3:11 PM

C'mon people it's time to dip into your wallet for yet more of your taxpaying dollars. That's right I'm talkin' 'bout Africville. I'm totally outraged with this waste of taxpaying dollars. And the secrecy involved? The former residents act like this is the only place urban renewal has occurred. Are we now going to reimburse the former residents of Greenbank (the former south end poor white neighbourhood)?

Didn't think so.

Another group of vocal whiners at the trough. It scares me to think to think that redress for former individual residents is even being discussed, let alone behind closed doors. City hall seems to feel lately lately they can do whatever they want. Have they forgotten they're supposed to be representing their constituents? —Dervish
