whoopeddeedoo , for the lost property prices and the lost views for the people inflicted by this monstrosity …

The question i put out there is …

Are they going to pay there taxes ?

Or are us Tax payers on the hook once again for yet another buisness that takes from the community but doesn’t give back ?

Is there something in the works to give restitution to the afflicted property owners ?

Are you serious? This suggestion is ridiculous! Anyone who purchases a home next to known industrial land is rolling the dice. They didn’t know it was industrial land you say? Well the train tracks should be a dead giveaway. The realtor told them that it would never be developed? There’s a typical salesman for you.

What has happened to this town? It was founded in being a port community and has never offered prime waterfront space. It was only a few changes on the waterfront with the big dock fire in the 70’s, moving of the grain elevator and a downturn in the economy that made it appear that the area was available for public enjoyment. It never would have stayed that way once our economy turned around and industry began the redevelop the area. Thank god our fortunes have changed and we once again have a bright future. Unfortunately people’s attitudes have changed and we no longer seem to be the community that supported industry and where people wanted to come to make a living. Perhaps the community could have been designed better back in the day but if you buy a house next to an active rail yard you’d better expect that it will be an active industrial area.

You guys remind me of those angry idiots from High River. Buying homes and properties knowingly it’s located directly on the flood plain, then expect full compensation for loss due to flood.
