I live downtown and absolutely love the urban mix. I'll let Reg speak for himself, but let's just say it's a fascinating look into the realities on King East when you know a shop owner who faces it everyday. The stories never end and I've come to realize that the mix certainly appears to be more heavily loaded to the poor end of the spectrum. Compassion for everyone is exactly right, but that doesn't mean I need to support cramming all the disadvantaged or poor into one area.
In the same way, I don't like having all the rich and well off separated into an area by themselves. We need a heck of a lot more of everyone downtown.

Sorry if my comments seemed harsh. Certainly not the intent (again, a meetup at the plucker would sure help eliminate the wonders of online chatting. haha)
