  1. The only ones excited are the junkies and deadbeats who will have a few more people to beg from for a while, the area will soon amount to a ghost town like the rest of the downtown as the remaining businesses move or shut down, one by one as they go broke.
    What a horrible waste of A PILE of taxpayer money while the city is in all kinds of ongoing trouble with homeless people, drug dealers and addicts, violent criminals, B&E’s, assaults and murders happening every day.
    The priorities at city hall are STILL, ASS backwards.

    1. All of the issues you addressed are out of a city’s control. Municipalities don’t oversee the healthcare system or justice system.
      Having said that, the 12 million spent on the plaza could have been used in more needed areas the city does oversee.

  2. Suddenly it is like the Bondar Tent never existed. It would have made more sense to further develop the tent area. It seems so wasteful to just let that tent sit there doing nothing most of the year.
