    I have read both your storys and still don’t think the government can do what you say. Yes, they can suggest levels but if people don’t move their what can the government do? Forced migration? Or the other option would be to force more immigrants to this City. And forcing people to live somewhere is not acceptable, just ask the Inuit!

    Margaret has a great point – Queen’s Park can plan for places to grow, but good folk don’t have to locate where is doesn’t make sense. If our tax rates continue under current management, the problem will solve itself. No one will be able to afford to live here. Growth itself is not a bad thing – BUT, it does need to be very well thought out. Not just house after house after ‘looks-like-another-Mississauga’ house. That was a bad idea. It’s been a nasty decade of vision-less growth, with not alot to show for it, accept, of course, a new city hall.

    Forcing people to live anywhere is how Canada started it’s political system. Mind you they were biggy backing off of the Unitied states. At first the French tried to blend with the Natives, and well the rest is history, and there are still reserves out there. In my opinion, still forcing people to live somewhere in order for them to get what is rightfully their heritage anyway. So kind of a moot point for us to argue over, is and has been done for centuries. I did however notice the amazing show of support at the Olympic games in Vancouver in recognition of the Native tribes and repect for their land. Anyway, thank you Native country person’s for sharing your land with us, teaching us how to survive on it, and giving us the recipes for the natural herbs and remedies, Doctors are now starting to turn to and listen to. I mean I don’t mean to be insensitive here, but shouldn’t we be looking after the first Native’s and their issues before creating new one’s??? Just asking?
