Re: Buy new condo, pick up $10K (July 17). Has city council gone completely over the edge? Planning to give $10,000 to people who purchase a condo downtown? All I hear is that we have no money to fix the crumbling roads and sidewalks, to cut grass, trim trees and plow streets -- you name it, the list goes on.
Yet we have money to give to people who can afford to purchase a condo, while parts of the city continue to fall apart and look atrocious? It is very generous of council to give away my tax dollars in such a fashion while they tell me nothing can be fixed in my neighbourhood because there is no money.
