What’s there not to hate about people who worked hard, saved their money, built society and know how to tip?

I think you mean "what IS there to hate..."

Irrespective of whether one likes or dislikes boomers, has excavation started on the project? I haven't been past the site in some time.

 

Tipsters want to know.

I meant that facetiously :)

I dunno, the collapse of the family, the collapse of religion, total rejection of tradition, complete moral degradation of society, wage slave economy propped up by mass immigration and plastic crap from China, Margaritaville casino retirements while their countries become totally unrecognizable and the life they had becomes utterly impossible for their kids and grandkids due to their ignorance and hedonism

The reality in a post-war era was one of consumerism. That's not necessarily the fault of the boomers, it's just the way their society shaped them. Millennials will prosper once boomers transition their wealth to them. It's all a cycle.

Who cares about their wealth? I want the aesthetic, cultural, religious, and spiritual birthright that they were handed and squandered.  Boomers were handed the best of western civilization on a silver platter and turned it into the atomized, rootless, debased world of 4 year old's getting hormone replacement therapy and Victoria City hall tearing down John A MacDonald and celebrating Ramadan.

I agree that the boomer generation didn't exactly leave behind a society and a planet that will allow millennials and younger generations to thrive in the same way boomers could.

That being said, not everything you listed is considered a bad thing by some people... I consider the collapse of religion and the kind of thinking that supports it to be a good thing. I feel similarly about "tradition" in some sense, as it can be used to justify immoral or irrational stances simply because "that's the way we've always done it"

An excellent example of thread drift, but don't worry, Mike K. started it so no intervention.

 

Jets or Leafs to semis?

Yes, excavation has started. Last time I passed there was a massive amount of exposed rock.  Putting the rock in Rockland, I guess.

The single level parkade covers a big part of the site, maybe 50% as it extends under the 4 floor and 6 floor buildings and the townhomes, so that's a lot of rock to blast and process.

 

Thank you for the update.

Have more trees been lost on the site than were first suggested in the planning?

Simple answer is no. Removal is subject to permitting. Take note of the protected areas.
