Dartmouth Crossing vs. Downtown Halifax

A lesson in city politics: why should council support Greater Burnside Business Association's opposition to Dartmouth Crossing expansion, then contradict themselves by changing bylaws related to HRM by Design downtown?

I just received a press release from the Greater Burnside Business Association. They are in opposition to a plan by nearby Dartmouth Crossing to rezone 31.5 hectares of land to the north of the shopping complex, from commercial to residential. Dartmouth Crossing wants to build apartment complexes, containing 1,500 units, on the land.
