I was just thinking about this Active Living Corridor a bit more. The plan is to build some sort of switchback ramp at the top of Cornwall Street to provide universal access to the Hillcrest Park from below. The Active Corridor starts across High Street from that park on upper Bay Street. So how will […]
Look. They are installing sidewalks. OK? That is the simple truth. Installing sidewalks is now called making the street pedestrian friendly. A better question to ask City Hall might be why don’t all streets have sidewalks? Why is the entire city not pedestrian friendly? Why are there so few controlled pedestrian crosswalks in the city? Memorial […]
The patio has now begun to take shape with the erection of a glass wall that will separate the splash pad kids from the diners. I am not sure how this affects the piece of public art. Does the fact an outdoor patio will be wedged in the middle of the sculpture change what the […]
They kinda look like ashtrays…no?
Transit manager Brad Loroff said the fence will ensure bus drivers and passengers comply with the bylaw that requires smokers to be three metres from the entrance to any workplace — including a bus.

“We can’t expect them to be open and have staff there facilitating sales when nobody is down here at the park,” Marina Park operations coordinator Kathy Ball said. You mean there are times when there is nobody down at the park? Really? That is not what City Hall has been saying for the passed two […]
Looks to me like there is still work to do on that contract. As far as I know, the spec says that concrete surfaces cannot have any visible flaws when viewed from a certain distance. The surface should be smooth looking and uniform in colour. Am I wrong? I am not sure what that […]
I have mentioned earlier that there are stretches of Algoma Street that are constructed higher than the sidewalk. That means the curbs are higher than the sidewalks. That means the boulevard slopes down from the curb to the sidewalk. In this case, it slopes down a lot. I would have thought that this design flaw […]
A flock of cones? A gaggle of cones? A murder? A herd? What is the proper terminology for a group of cones? These ones are not really serving a purpose at all, are they? Yet, here they will lie for days? weeks? months?
