‘The houses in the cul-de-sac accross the Street have assessed values ranging from $588K to $866K (public information, available on City of Edmonton website). There is no way this should be allowed to harm their property values which they (unlike the proposed residents) have worked their entire lives to afford. There is a reason the Southwest has historically been the quietest and safest part of town to live in. Houses are expensive and thus owners do all they can to protect their investments (which leads to even higher house prices) – Get it?’
– Most recent comment on the CTV website regarding the proposed development in Terwillegar Towne.
Get the message? If you’re rich enough to be able to afford a house worth $866,000, then you deserve a quiet and safe neighbourhood. On the other hand, if you’re a poor schmuck, you’ll have to put up with the beggars, the gangs, the drugs and the crime, and your kids will never have the chance to break out of the cycle of poverty. So let’s keep the poor in their proper place – far away from us!
