The long-empty lot on Yates St near the post office (across from Hernandez), which I affectionately refer to as "Lake Victoria" is finally going to be used! If you've not been downtown recently, you'll be surprised to know that they're going to build condos. Yes, apparently we need more bland, glass-steel condos with balconies big enough for a small chair or a potted plant. The best part is the tagline for the project: "It's About Time". I'm not sure if they mean, "it's about time they did something with that unsightly urban lake" or, "it's about time we had more bland condos downtown" -- perhaps it's a bit of both.
