Gord Mackay Edgehill Park Re-Zoning Vote

Mayor MacKay provides the rationale behind his vote on the controversial bylaws to rezone Edgehill Park paving the way for a health hub to be built on the parkland.

We give him a FAIL.  Evidently, he cannot grasp that he is being asked to re-zone parkland; and instead feels compelled to say why he supports the intended use instead of the whether a new use is warranted or un-warranted. Our contention has been all along that this is not about Waypoint/Chigamik, but about the commercialization of parkland… period.  He could not wrap his mind around this and was not alone.

Furthermore, he fails to consider the losses (economic and aesthetic), known as “injurious affection” to the homes and residents who’s sight lines to Georgian Bay and the parkland are lost by his actions and without any consideration or offer of compensation.

Mayor MacKay and George MacDonald were the two biggest promoters of this concept and evidently were bound and determined, at all costs and to the exclusion of all rational arguments to the contrary, to push this through.

For your unbending determination to do what you think is best and put yourself above the will of a significant number of the electorate, we award you a FAIL.

  1. “Furthermore, he fails to consider the losses (economic and aesthetic), known as “injurious affection” to the homes and residents who’s sight lines to Georgian Bay and the parkland are lost by his actions and without any consideration or offer of compensation.” Guaranteed these homes will lose value if they ever choose to sell them.

  2. That is the first thing I noticed too. I actually PM’d the admin and asked.. they said YouTube picked three thumbnails and this is the only one that showed him, the rest were of the whole room? Anyway, seems kind of fitting from what I am reading. You guys did get the bird.
