Letter: Why do some try to block every project in Buffalo?

Why do some try to block every project in Buffalo?

It never ceases to amaze me the people who hate good ideas or progress in Buffalo. We have a person who wants to knock down a terrible eyesore and build a beautiful building on the Outer Harbor and spur development of a long-neglected area.

Now there are people who would have you believe there will be dead birds piling up like cord wood around the building, and others who say the old Freezer Queen warehouse is some sort of an example of great historical significance, or the new building would limit public access to the water.

That disastrous monolith already is off-limits to the public, and I don’t see Toronto or other cities with developed waterfronts overwhelmed with bird corpses. If these people have their way, we’ll be looking at that monument to dysfunction till Mother Nature reclaims it.
