    Looking back at the core reasons and methods, the expropriation of properties and spending millions of tax dollars, to revive downtown Winnipeg in order to gain back lost tax revenues. In return we still have an area that is less desirable to do business in than the suburbs and it has an increasing crime rate. Can’t wait to see what brillant idea our city leaders will come up with next to fix this problem but rest assured it will result in continued tax increases with a minimal if any bang for our buck. .

    Your map graphic looks like Easter Island.

    Reply to Yer Pal: There is a striking resemblance. The major difference is the density. Winnipeg has several in some cases many on just one city block.
