False framing of the St. Pat's-Alexandra sale

City staff report is a disingenuous attempt to mislead councillors and the public.


The north end community was rightly incensed by city council's December 13 decision to sell the former St. Pat's-Alexandra school site to developer Joe Metlege without first offering the school to neighbourhood community groups, as required by council policy.

In the face of that anger, council reversed the sale on January 10, and directed staff to bring back a report on what went wrong with the sale.

The staff report is now completed, and was released Friday as part of the agenda for this coming Tuesday's council meeting.

It is a despicable document.

If the community was angry in December, they should be boiling mad now. And people not directly part of the north end community should likewise be disgusted that their government officials are engaging in a straight up racist attack on fellow citizens; the broader community should be just as indignant for what's being done in their name.
