The only reference I could find to the OB United Church proposal was this thread so here is where I will vent on those sniveling, whining crybabies in OB who oppose this development; my favorite comment comes from one Diana Butler, ex-mayor of "Ye Olde Musty Stick in the Mud & Crappy Clone of the Blighty of Yore", aka Oak Bay.

 

Referring to the fact many homes in the immediate area sport signs in opposition - big surprise, its Oak Bay after all - she actually has the temerity to drone on about sympathizing with the plight of young families and seniors and the high cost of housing in the area -yada, yada, blah, blah, blah, blah - and that she and her ilk are "sympathetic to that" <yeah....sure you are lady...in a pig's eye....> but the proposed apartment block would according to her via the article "set a precedent, causing a domino effect on the street, possibly spurring other similar developments...." - 

 

Yep....just imagine that: more FOUR story buildings. What a burden! And in Oak Bay no less guvnor'....! I can hear the cries from the barricades now.....

 

"...My_GOD Margie - DEVELOPMENT!?!?!?!? RENTAL HOUSING????!?!?!?! Here?! In OAK BAY??????? In the 21st Century?!?! Well_I_NEVER......!! The Horror, the Horror....!!!!!!

**The best part of the article is in the Comments section where certain stuffy stuck up OB prigs actually defend their sentiments on the issue. The entire lot of them should be put in a position where at some point when they are older and in failing health that they lose their precious cushy baronial manors behind the Tweed Curtain and have to wind up in a crappy RV park somewhere between Armpit and Bumstuffer BC; perhaps then they might learn the meaning of terms like empathy, compassion, kindness and humility. Not to mention plain old fashioned good neighborliness. What a bunch of pencil neck putzes.....

NIMBYs always profess sympathy for the plight of young families, seniors and the high cost of housing; it's just there is always someplace better for these sorts of  projects than their neighbourhoods.

In reality though, where else in Oak Bay would rental housing be better suited than one block away from the 2, 3, 7, and 8 bus routes, future protected bike lanes along Oak Bay Ave, and an incredibly short walking distance to Oak Bay Village?

Really, where do they think rental housing should go in Oak Bay? Or do they not really believe that Oak Bay should contribute in any way to providing homes in a time when they're desperately needed?

If the opponents were being truly honest, I think they'd have to admit they don't think "affordable" housing is suitable for Oak Bay.
