How did the meeting go? I wanted to be there but was stuck in Toronto that evening.
smr;
I did attend but it was a waste of my time. I asked one of the consultants about the impact on our community. She said that there would be no impact, so I asked if there would be any smokestacks of any kind present on the site?
She wasn't positive that there weren't any stacks but stated that the gentleman on the other side of the room had all the answers to my questions, I assumed that he was the owner of this company.
A couple of Beach residents and myself went over to ask some questions, but he had two other fellas already asking questions. These guys must of pro question askers, they just kept on asking lame question after lame question, who cares if there are computers on the floor or not. It kind of reminded me of some of the infomercials you see on TV as it seemed that they having a conservation for our benefit.
I have never seen these question askers before so I know they are not from the Beach Strip and after ten minutes of dumb questions, I gave up and left.
So I never did get answers to my concerns which will affect us all.
I don't know what this will do to our community and that doesn't even take into account that there will be another mess on Eastport for the thousands that pass everyday to see.
