St. John's Development on my mind

Close to 400 people jammed into the Foran Room at City Hall on Monday night for a public forum on Smart Growth and, with standing room only, people spilled into the hallway & adjoining council meeting rooms. It was quite a sight to behold. Canadian satirist Mary Walsh, local retailer guru Dave Hopley, local socioeconomic consultant Stratt Canning and others (including songwriter Ron Hynes) had striking points to make from the podium. It may be a turning point in the development of this City/community. Hear CBC.ca/nl on the go for some of the speeches.
