With today’s ESCALATING construction costs showing no signs in slowing down, by the time the proposed “HJ Titanic” SportsPlex Centre is built, I assure you overrun costs will be well beyond today’s $210 MILLION DOLLAR price tag! Meaning: the leasing of the Harry Jerome Lands to Mussatto’s double dipping donor Darwin Construction was: “be the first to know” nothing less than one hell of a bargain land grab!” This will surely lead to the HJ Titanic’s booty sinking in its own glutenous shortsightedness.
The only alternative is to lose the damn Olympic size pool & curling rink and build it in a cost effective timely measured components, afforded and rationalized by the newly elected city council. i.e. when comps mentis, rationale returns to city council in over a decade.
My POV is still and will always remain the same… renovate the existing Harry Jerome CRC and tell Darwin to go “multiply elsewhere.” And in the upcoming election I will not be voting for the return of any of these colluding city councillors or those shameless enough to run for mayor. They have proven to be in the pockets of their 2014 campaign donors or colluding horse traders. Either way in my mind they are incompetent civic legislators, failing to equate the “social construct of our existing neighbourhoods.” i.e. having turned their backs on NIMBY’s time after time, over and over and over again! #Enough! #Vote4Change
And finally tonight we will witness the final scenes in a made for city council staged play I’ve entitled: “The Councillor Back Fix Is In.” Mayor Mussatto, wannabe mayor Buchanan, Councillor Keating will be wearing their pseudo masks denouncing such an oversized recreational centre and their concerns over the Harry Jerome Lands unprecedented 30 & 26 storey faulty towers… HYPOCRITES who have since their 2014 re-elections have recklessly approved every prior high rise development. Mussatto’s Team Slate: Buchanan, Keating and Back having turned their backs on EVERY neighbourhood petition, letters and emails in protest. #LestWeNeverForgetOnOctober20
