Bronconnier council sterilizes Marda Loop
U.S. President Barak Obama has branded him a corporate welfare bum --- town gossips claim he is a trillionaire --- the Old Timer lives in subsidized housing and spends his days dumpster diving

24-Oct-06 -

Calgary's Dave Bronconnier-led city council have allowed Marda Loop's Karma Local Arts House, at 2101 33 Avenue S.W. to be demolished to be replaced by another sterile condo development. Jane Jacobs, author of The Death and Life of Great American Cities, will roll over in her grave. As they sterilized Penny Lane at 8th Avenue and 5th Street in downtown Calgary so the devolper-adoring-Broconnier council is rapidly converting Marda Loop into another concrete jungle. Karma provided a pub (click here to learn more about pubs) filled with colour and atmosphere for locals, a funky locale for artists. Expect to soar the number of impaired drivers from the 33rd Avenue neighbourhood, no longer able to stagger home from a local pub, and expect to soar the depression of 33rd Avenuers as their joie de vivre plunges while the colour of 33rd deflates from technicolor to concrete gray.
