The Pearl is a symbol of what's wrong with this city in general and this ward in particular (I live in Ward 2 btw). When a business owner has to pay $1-200 thousand dollars in fees just to turn an empty warehouse into a thriving arts centre something's SERIOUSLY out of wack. When the councilor says 'meh, there's a process' and hides behind that, something's SERIOUSLY out of wack with the leadership for that ward. I defy ANYONE to defend why a business should have to shell out $1-200 thousand dollars in friggin' fees to turn an empty building into a successful business. And we wonder why smart business goes to other places.
