  1. Really? Another link to the knee-jerk extremists at the Media co-op, but not a word on the Roy Building and Discovery Centre BS heritage destruction? Let down.

  2. McCallum — yes, we only include urban-focused headlines because we are an explicitly urban-focused blog. Our mandate, scrawled across the top of the page, is “understanding the urban landscape.” For more info, see our ‘About’ section.  

    Matt — what’s knee-jerk about an article celebrating a creative community lecture series?

    I do hope to answer your call to cover the Roy Building issue, however. Minor glitches have prevented earlier coverage.
