sad day for Italians

The battle to save Little Italy is all but lost, as politicians pander to the developers who cut them cheques.

Lot sizes in Arbeatha are big, so there’s lots to mow. Neighbours sometimes share machines.

    At this point no one has declared that arsonists were involved with the fire at St. Thomas in Crystal Beach, although that’s what it sounds like. Pretty fishy, we’ll have to wait and see what the investigators have come up with.

    with all this being allowed in little italy … what chance do the rest of us have ?
    this intensification is going too far

    The thing is, people look at what’s going on in the core and say this is awful. Yet not a word about what is going on in the suburbs – something like 3000-5000 houses under construction in Kanata/Stittsville with another 2000 expected to start in late 2014. Yet not a word from the media.

  4. margaret says:

    the kanata/stittsville is new development and there is media coverage when developers push the limits like removing tress and demanding to use natural spots
    I feel for the ones who are in established communities that suddenly they have 10-20-40 storey hi-rises on their doorstep … westboro is an example … Richmond (the original) road is now a dark cavern with those new hi-rises on both sides … they block the sun for most of the day
    if this kind of over-kill of intensification is allowed rather than modified infill then communities will disappear and they will become cement ghettos
    and that’s what could happen on Robertson if it isn’t controlled … low-rise is fine
    hi-rise is fine in new areas as people will be buying into that kind of community, not having it forced on them like westboro and little italy
