Ken, it appears from the article on the main Bulldog page that the land value has been adjusted to reflect its polluted condition. This makes sense, as the fair value of the land was impaired by the prior uses of the property.
I am looking forward to seeing how the next phases of this city building project progress.January 25, 2018 at 2:43 PM #743560January 25, 2018 at 5:51 PM #743563

My guess is that the NCC and RendezVous are trying to anticipate how His Worship will try to scupper the deal next.
He’s talked about needing to know what Melnyk will do with the CTC which is none of his damn business.
Ole Showboat Jim isn’t through with mucking with this project.
It’s an election year and he has his partners to keep happy. And oh yes, he hates the NCC.

Is it only the developer that can apply for the remediation money or can the landowner, in this case the NCC, make that application?
The reimbursement of costs should go to the entity that bears the cost. If the value of the land is reduced and the owner takes a loss in selling it, why wouldn’t they be able to recover it? Maybe they should be going after the polluter which is, in whole or in part, the operators of the snow dump that the city had on the site over many years.January 28, 2018 at 10:50 AM #744271
I would think just the developer because every owner of polluted land would be applying for it right now.
Sure the city played a part in polluting the land. But then so did the Great Ottawa Fire. I’m told the ashes from that inferno are still there. And other industrial uses that are now long gone.
cheers and thx
