    Jesus, just leave that block alone and develop one of the used car lots.

    It looks like a demolition permit was issued in January, so maybe there is some traction on this site. Though, I don't know if the multi tower BP permit from years back is still valid to allow for construction to start right away. Maybe @MichaelS could weigh in.

    The brochure looks to be years out of date from when Grosvenor owned it so who knows what's going on.

    US Politics

    It’s really no different though. Both involve texts that outline vague propositions that need to be interpreted in order to determine what specific rights and procedural obligations are contained within the Charter and s.35. It has been SCC decisions that have expanded the meaning and substance...

    US Politics

    They are not supposed to be equal, they are supposed to act within their constitutional authority and no more. The same goes with state legislatures and division of powers between the state and federal governments. The Supreme Court's role, when it comes to rights or federalism questions, is to...

    The other thing to add is that a good portion of inner city residential areas not coloured orange that you see on that map are still zoned for low density, semi-detatched R-2 and R-C2. This is not that big of an improvement over single family zoning, especially with how small households are...

    Not wrong at all- they're native to northern Alberta but have been spreading throughout the province the last few decades according to the articles I've read. Hopefully they don't impact trout fisheries.

    City Parks, Rivers, and Wildlife

    Crawfish are definitely not native to the Bow River watershed and should be reported to the provincial government alongside where you found them. They are very invasive and it's concerning you found as many as you did in the Elbow. On the other hand, gumbo anyone?

    As I recall, the city holds title to all of the Stampede land and leases the portion of land, from roughly south of 14th ave to the Elbow, to the Stampede. The lands north of 14th, including Olympic Way, are also owned by the city.

    No can do-- I got hit with a paywall when I went to go back and re-watch.

    Don't they always do that to make it easier for the equipment and pile drivers? It also helps to not create a big morass if it rains I imagine

    I think so and I don't think that number would include Neo Financial's 185 million they raised in May.

    These are my concerns that stick out after a month reflecting on this project. In no particular order: More office space?? The risk of the heritage buildings getting torn down and the project stalling out like with what happened with the Bow South Block Zero care for restoring heritage...

    Weather and Gardening Discussion

    I'm definitely a little worried. If the rain forecasted for alpine locations in the Bow and Elbow watershed happens we could be in trouble. I think the 2013 floods had around 200mm in Canmore and surrounding areas over two days and we are not too far off from that.

    It would easily take the crown as having the most oppressive massing in the city on what is currently the most human scale street in the CBD (unless you count surface lots as human scale)
