Lansdowne Live gets approval....

After last night's decision, Roger Greenberg walked over to city manager Kent Kirkpatrick, who told him, “the hard work begins.”

No kidding.

It's like planning a wedding...a big wedding. Getting approval from your future father-in-law to marry his daughter is the easy part. Now you get to plan every little detail from what kind of tablecloths to have at dinner to what song you and your bride should dance to. Then there's the politics of who sits with who and how long your going to keep the open bar going. You get to a point during the process where you start pulling out your hair and wonder if the event will ever take place.

Regardless of where you stand on the issue, at least something is finally being done with, as Ward 2 councillor Rainer Bloess referred to as Lansdowne Dump. Hopefully when the construction is done, we can all sit back enjoy a football game and cheer for whatever team hits the field.

I'll even buy Clive Doucette a beer.
