Here's the first test.
City councillors? You can get on board the new plan. Before it's even drafted.
Save the Grain Exchange Annex from doom. We all know the last thing we need downtown, is more fucking parking.
The city's historic buildings committee says it's a rare downtown example of 1920s architecture, but council's Lord Selkirk-West Kildonan community committee supports the owner's plan to demolish the Annex to make way for a parkade.
The committee did not have quorum on Tuesday, so the hearing is now slated for July 13
Seriously, these kinds of shit plans only send our downtown into further debauchery. If the easiest thing to do in this city is bulldoze an old building an erect a parkade, then no wonder our downtown isn't a bustling centre. One only needs to use half their brain to figure out that something BETTER than a parkade can go on an empty lot or old building.
Ultimately the new Plan Winnipeg will not have room for this kind of stupidity of putting up parking lot after parking lot after parkade. So why not get a head start on things?
Isn't that what we want downtown to be? Better?
