article imageOp-Ed: Toronto's waterfront needs a makeover Special

By Andrew Moran     Apr 3, 2010 in Travel
Toronto - Dilapidated boards, graffiti and trash all over the place will force the Toronto government to fix many areas of the waterfront ensure that the taxpayers’ money will actually go somewhere useful instead of Adam Giambroni’s expensive trips to France.
I have always questioned the city of Toronto’s priorities and I wonder why they do the things they do. Today, as I was walking around the Harborfront with my friend pondering about the treacherous miseries about life, we were discussing why the municipal government doesn’t renovate the one part of Harborfront.
With the sun shining and the temperatures warming up the cold souls of Torontonians, the waterfront of Toronto needs a much needed renovation before someone collapses.
The waterfront of Toronto is a favorite for a lot of the city’s inhabitants, especially during the spring and summer, sometimes even on the coldest days, but if Mayor David Miller wanted the Harborfront to be more attractive, wouldn’t he conduct some renovations or even fix various aspects of that tourist destination?
On Saturday, my friend and I noticed the boards that people walk on were coming apart and even lifted up as you walked on them, which I can eventually see breaking and cost the city even more in the end.

Last year, the city of Toronto was given a garbage strike, which stunk up the entire metropolitan area and made it look like a pigsty. Right now there is no strike but for some reason the waterfront was full of trash on Saturday and the wind made the garbage fall off the trash bin and float in the water.
However, the Mayor did provide some sort of deck that I think is supposed to be a bench.
