On 29th February, in an interview with CBC Radio’s “Early Edition“, Nancy Keough, Executive Director of the Kettle, and a lead proponent of the Boffo Tower proposal, said about the location of their tower at Venables & Adanac/Venables:
“It’s all industrial; there is nothing down there.”
This is a truly bizarre and untrue statement as anyone who lives in that neighbourhood can attest. But don’t take my word for it. Here is a map of densities by Stats Can census tracts (click on image for a larger view):
As you can plainly see, the Commercial diversion at Adanac is slap in the middle of one of the City’s densest districts, with populations at the 10,000 to 15,000 per sq.km level — the highest available designation.
This willfully inaccurate statement, along with other misrepresentations, has to indicate their acknowledgment that there are no real arguments in favour of the unwanted highrise tower. Perhaps their multiple PR companies should take them aside and advise them that this nonsense will always come back to bite them in the ass.
