The Return Of The Skyscrappers

Skyscrapper imitator Al “Scarface” Capone

Well lookie here. Golly Wally. Catch who is back on The Bulldog.

Why the Skyscrappers who are to urban planning what Al Capone was to his enemies.

The Skyscrappers haunt Skyscraperpage.com. That’s a pretentious lot of people who think they know everything there is to know about how Ottawa should be built. And anyone who disagrees with them is a NIMBY and an idiot.

The Skyscrappers Return

Well lookie who’s back.

Without Skyscrappers, Skyscraperpage.com Gets Smart

It’s too bad that much of the skyscraperpage.com has declined into a bunch of trolls because it had the possibility of becoming a bright, intelligent forum for urban thought.
