Critical point 

Dear Mark Palermo,

This is in response to your mostly negative review of Al Gore's documentary An Inconvenient Truth. I have just seen it and have to strongly disagree with your review. I am sure nearly all of the people who have seen the film feel you're being your typically harsh self, and thereby doing a great disservice to many who would otherwise choose to see it. If Roger Ebert can give this film four stars—as he usually does to films that you tend to mysteriously pan—perhaps you might take note and not try to set yourself apart with often singly negative reviews. A conspicuous aesthete like yourself could be mistaken for a frustrated filmmaker. If you're not going to make important films yourself, the least you can do is call our attention to the films that matter most instead of muddying the waters so that they have less impact.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
