Many in Akinsdale identify with low-income

This is regarding Sandra Hansen's comments about the residents opposed to the Arlington Drive Project. It's laughable that you would think that the residents of Akinsdale are against low-income people.

Dogs get more space than people

To the potential future residents of the monstrosity by Apollo Developments, for $200,000, you will receive four-foot yards, minimal parking, no fencing, no basement, zero storage, monthly condo fees, high taxes and strong neighbourhood opposition.
