...what does this possibly have to do with having a "right to a view"?
It should be self-evident that such notions are absurd. If every view were guaranteed then it wouldn't be possible to build anything, anywhere. Somebody's view would always be impacted, whether building big or small, whether building short or tall, and whether viewed from nearby or afar. And what constitutes a preserved view as versus an altered view as versus a ruined/eliminated view? We've talked about it countless times, how things like the Empress Hotel, the legislative buildings, the RBCM etc. were all massive view blockers that stole harbour views from huge numbers of homes and businesses. So did those buildings ruin the view or didn't they?
