Whoah whoah. All this excitement over an article by...Gordan Sinclair? Where is Sinclair even getting his information? If his call went unreturned, how does he know any specifics about the project? And really, can any piece of journalism that includes the phrase "the convenience of shopping in Winnipeg Square" be trusted?

I haven't trusted a word Sinclair has written in 20 years. I'll reserve excitement until the shovels are in the ground. And even then I'll still have my doubts. The site has been held hostage for almost 40 years, and I have very little confidence that anything good will ever be done with it.

And how would this possible announcement effect the future plans for Portage and Main? Why do I think that Artis Reit would only move forward with their plan if the city guarantees that no pedestrian will cross Portage and Main for another generation?

So I guess what I'm saying is that I'm a wee bit skeptical about this project.
