Now this is what you call some serious fireworks. World Pride 2014 is doing a super job!
We all love to complain on UT and I'm no exception to that rule. When out at World Pride, I couldn't help but notice that people were constantly on their cell phone and tablets, so of course, I had to make a viseo to bitch about it.
Were the bars open until 04:00 though? I think they could only apply for that next weekend. Correct me if I'm wrong though (although, I believe NXNE venues could apply for this past weekend). And I really hope our next Mayor gets Council to make the whole city always 04:00 for the record.I haven't seen like ups like that for a long time and since the bars will be open til 4 am, cha-ching!!! Now the Village can have 10 days of partying to make lots of money.
Some people think public space only equals trees and grass. As an aside, I have a friend in Hamilton who refuses to set foot in Yonge-Dundas Square for this reason. He says it just annoys him that we didn't put trees and grass there, oblivious to the fact that it would all likely be dead with all the crowds anyway.Recall the neighbourhood agitators complaining about the clearcut?
Well said, both Jason and Torontovibe. Having said that, it's pretty reasonable for there to be angst whenever healthy urban trees are cut down to make way for a park redesign. The results look great (although I have yet to see it in person), but people should be forgiven the hand-wringing.
Get over there when you can Skeezix, pictures cannot capture how great it is!
many (perhaps all) of the trees that were taken down were diseased or generally unhealthy anyway
