Survey and comment thread on this subject now on The Spec website: http://thespec.typepad.com/specthread/20...
Survey link on main page. Some of the comments are a good example of a backwards mindset.

'some of the comments'?? Well, that's an improvement over the usual discussions that go on over there.

Why doesn't the spec do a poll question like this:

"Do you support the city's desire to see downtown buildings filled with businesses and stores along with an increasing population and attractiveness to business investors and hotel/condo developers instead of long stretches of boarded up streets with no shoppers in sight?"

That's the goal of two-way conversions, streetscapes and major investments into the market/library along with Lister etc.....

Here's a scary thought - if downtown were to boom back to life, the Spec would lose their ability to run sensational polls like this and headlines like yesterday's. I'm just sayin.......
