"Weren't you just protesting about the Nimby's who wanted to throw a wrench into this project, Uta?"/bleh
...there's a difference from "residence" complaining about how the height that would "obstruct" their view, when there really isn't any around in the immediate area that would be truly effected by this. And demonstratively so. Versus, tearing down something iconic to replace it with something that's not really that iconic at all. I mean, couldn't the U of T find a surface parking lot somewhere to throw this up on?
It seems that peeps are all up in arms over this for entirely the wrong reasons; straining at the height gnats, while letting the heritage elephant lumber by.
...sorry for the soapbox rant though.
