Re: Better ways to fight poverty than moving CP yards (July 11). While I agree with Jim Silver's argument that relocating the CP rail yards is not the best way to solve poverty in Winnipeg's inner city, relocating the rail yards, nevertheless, has been the objective of many urban and city planners since the 1960s.
Relocating the yards has more to do with urban planning and the goal to stopping urban sprawl. Removing the CP rail yards would open up the land for commercial and residential development, including new schools and recreational facilities in the inner city.
