Lawn signs opposing a 12-storey tower at Commercial Drive and Venables have been sprouting up like mushrooms around the Drive.
But as quickly as they go up, somebody’s been taking them down.
“We lost another four this morning,” said Tom Durrie of the No Tower at Venables and Commercial coalition. “There were at least 15 before that.”
The No Tower forces have distributed 96 lawn signs and collected 1,777 signatures from residents opposed to the tower.
“Our feeling is that a large tower on this corner is just totally out of character and out of place with the neighbourhood,” said Durrie.
