Re: “Andy Fillmore’s best-laid plans

It's not the one-acre lots that are the problem, its urban / commuter sprawl. Living off the land that a one-acre lot provides is absolutely the way go. Why aren't banks / government allowing for people to grow their own food and fuels such as ethanol, and supply themselves with solar and wind power? Sustainable, modern development comes in many forms, it isn't simply shiny new downtown condos. Think outside the box Andy.

Re: “Andy Fillmore’s best-laid plans

"...I know the units being built there are not one-acre units that are being built in a forest or a farm that have to be serviced by infrastructure and has to be maintained at a cost that the taxes we raise from those areas will never pay for it."


People who live outside the city can't afford to live in one of the new condos. Affordable housing in the core is therefore a high priority IMO. Let's not treat the people who can't afford a mortgage in the city core like they don't deserve municipal infrastructure.

Re: “Andy Fillmore’s best-laid plans

Well if the Liberal deficit promise/prediction in the election clearly illustrates, the need to be better informed is something Fillmore and Libs should take more seriously. That said, I'm not sure how much more delay I'm willing to stomach. Successive Liberal and Conservative Govs have been at this for going on 16 years. The imperative with this issue commands that we take bolder action. We know how to reduce our GHG emissions. It's time we implemented.

Re: “People want Cindy Day fired because of her Frankie MacDonald comments

Well, it's not like there isn't anything important to talk about, like our jobs and future in this province.
