Toronto embarks on a Big

Toronto embarks on a Big Construction folly that approaches Boston's Big Dig for madness and hubris. The plan for revitalizing the waterfront calls for burying a giant eyesore of an elevated highway, while bulldozing the warehouse where I live when I'm there. I've got 50'x40'x20' of stuff crammed into that loft, and I've got no idea what I'm going to do with it all, nor when I'm going to cope with it. But the funding for the project's been approved and it's only a matter of time until they knock down my home to make way for a park. I'd had hopes that with the economy collapsing, the City would be reluctant to drop a couple billion on a big earthworks project, but I was wrong, alas alack.
