Hmmmm….let the street urchins have free rein in the south core, dropping the property values so the buildings can be scooped up by who knows who…on the cheap?
Then, surprise, surprise, the area will be cleaned up and up goes the value? Too much of a conspiracy theory? I don’t think so.
Could the City of Thunder Bay clean up the south core? Sure, if they set their minds on it. That would take money.
Sadly, all City funds leveraged from the province and Federal government are always heading to Prince Arthur’s Landing, the waterfront and the bank accounts of consultants and contractors. What’s left to be spent on the rest of the city is limited. Extremely limited.
Priorities…its all about priorities.
