THISis what’s wrong with Winnipeg, by the way.
Not the building of a nice new house in a decent area, but the owners of ugly, outdated houses from the 50s and 70s who refuse to allow that sometimes change isn’t The End of The World.
All these neighbourhoods, in any other major city in Canada, would have been torn down and rebuilt twice now, but people here get so upset over any change. You can drive down Wellington Crescent, for example (the ‘big house, big money’ street, more or less) and mixed in with the big, fancy, custom-built houses are shitty little bungalows that have been there for over 40 years, easily. It looks ridiculous.
But that’s what happens when your City Council has the backbone of a jellyfish.
