    Hey saucy face the only manure here is yours as you are full of crap and have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. Same goes for Hedley & Diversify. Didn't see any of you at the meeting to voice your opinion, where were you? I know, hiding behind a fictious name because you don't have the guts to let everyone know who you really are not only on this matter but most others as well where you constantly complain about everything. Since when is the concern for the safety of children and the general public wrong. Also, for you to try and play a racism slant here is disgusting and simply shows how low you really are. Everyone who was at that meeting made it quite clear that they fully support the Friendship Centre and their work but had concerns about safety issues in this already very busy and dangerous section of Elizabeth Avenue. All the people opposed made it clear that there was no need to change a residential house into a commercial business with 8 staff and 32 clients. It is not the place for this or any other commercial business in this or any other residential area of the city with such a high traffic volume. Those living in that neighbourhood, for over 60 years, who have invested years of blood, sweat and tears keeping the area a nice place to raise families know better than anyone how such a commercial establishment will do nothing except create more dangerous traffic issues and potential for loss of life. If you were at the meeting you would also know that most in attendance did not live in the immediate area next to 97 Elizabeth Avenue rather the whole area as far away as Churchill Park so your NIMBY slant holds no merit either. If you care so much why don't you ask the city to have this business on your street if you live on one. If you care to respond to this please do so and let us know your real name unless you haven't the guts to do so. Go get a life and quit complaining about everything that you are obviously not qualified to comment on.

    Isn't there also an elementary school and multitudes of summer camps in that area anyway? Create the daycare, fill the needs gap of the neighbourhood and get over it. You won't even notice and you will have forgotten you complained in about a week. Grow up. This is a city not a suburb.

    What a load of horse manure! These NIMBY's can come up with all the excuses they want, but in the end their manure smells of snobby racism
