According to city hall, “Burlington’s Burlassic Park roared with excitement as over 2000 people came out to cheer on the Toronto Raptors and celebrate the historic win of Game 1 of the NBA Finals.”

The City of Burlington wants to continue to share Canada’s moment with Burlington residents and is all in to host free public viewings for every NBA Finals game.

    Penny, logic is that a builder can build what he wants (of course under our already onerous specifications) and purchasers can buy what they want, rather than have Big Brother and you band of social engineers make more rules that interfere with individual choice.

    Anybody that is thinking of purchasing or renting a condo that will be built on Brant/James Street should really like noise. Can you imagine living across from ‘Burlassic Park”.

    Perhaps a better idea would be for the Planning Department to require a higher standard for noise control in the building phase of these developments. It can be done, If anyone has stayed at the Airport Hotel at Terminal 3 – you never hear any noise from airplanes or anything else.

    Doubt this will happen, its too logical.
