As many of you will know, we have been setting up our information table in Grandview Park every Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoon for several weeks now. Through contacts at those tables we have met and spoken with literally thousands of residents and visitors.
The campaign has gained immeasurably from these face-to-face discussions collecting nearly 2,000 signatures there alone, collecting ideas from folks that have advanced the campaign, and being encouraged by the responses we have received.
Just as importantly,we have helped develop a sharper appreciation of our neighbourhood and a fuller understanding of the issues surrounding densification, affordability, and building form.
We have no hesitation in contrasting our open and transparent community-based approach to the developer and their allies who have hunkered down in their offices, allowing high-priced PR agents to act for them.
Now that summer is drawing to a close, we have decided to concentrate on Saturdays in the Park for the next while. We will be in our usual spot in the Park on the Drive from 1:00pm to 5:00pm each Saturday (other than in torrential rain) until further notice.
Please come by and chat: we love the interaction, the dialogue, and the community spirit that these conversations generate.
