Just a reminder, in case anyone had not seen it recently, about the state of the property that could have seen the Admiral Collingwood Place and The Strand developments on it by now. After three years, we still have a water-filled hole at the entrance to the downtown. This is, of course, the site local wags haved dubbed "Carrier's Pond" in memory of the mayor who made the motion to repeal it's legal and democratically-awarded heritage permits.
I see that the property is gradually becoming a mini-wetland, home to a small ecology of wildlife. Proof that life evolves, even if politicians don't.
I was downtown today, taking some photos of the site for my election material. Not that I'm proud of this council's legacy, but I don't want anyone to forget. Oh, and the names of the five who voted to repeal those permits and as a result obtained what you see here for all of us to enjoy: Carrier, Jeffrey, McNabb, Edwards and Foley.
