Since posting about the Civic Centre coming before City Council this Monday night, online reaction has been both swift, and mostly negative.
Here are a few highlights from some of the comments we have received to the story.
“Wow, this is outrageous. $8.4 million can resurface a lot of roads or help a lot of people out during this time. $8.4 million dollars is so much money.” -Brianne Zielinski
“It’s 8.4 million dollar now up 2.2 million and it hasn’t even started. So like everything else the city does it should finish off at about 16/17 million dollars when completed. Take it to the people to vote on before you spend anymore money and time on this to see if they want this nothing park very very few will use after the first year.” – Tony LeClair
“Of course all you Karen’s if you had nothing to b**** about, you would be miserable ….I think it is a great idea, and why not, this city needs something to make us happy again….no city has ever had perfect smooth roads, and even when they do pave them over or fix them, more Karen’s bitch about the inconvenience of having to go around the construction…..So stop b****ing, accept it, and enjoy it when it does get built.” -Wendy Mayville
“I do agree something has to be done in that area to spruce it up, but not to the tune of 8 million !! Absolutely ridiculous !!
Build a rehab Center..it creates jobs, and will help our sad drug situation in this city..they have nowhere to go !!
Spending $250,000 was out of the question to keep Point Des Chenes going yet they don’t blink an eye on this ludicrous scenario? Unbelievable.” – Robin McDonald.
As of 1:20 p.m. May 8, 2021, a poll running on our webpage showed 71 out of 90 readers didn’t support the plaza.
