A lot of Kingston residents are upset over the idea that our skyline may soon be changing. There are a number of proposals being presented to council that could introduce our city to Skycrapers or high rises.
‘The Capitol’ is among the first to throw their name into the ring in the hopes of gaining approval for a high rise on Queen Street. When we asked listeners what they thought about this – the response was mixed with more negative reaction than positive. My thought is this – the new developments will revitalize the downtown and bring more business to our area. When you think about it, there are much worse things to hit our city than skyscrapers. Such as…
GODZILLA – a big lizard crushing all of our buildings is a far worse scenario than any tall building. Plus, what does Godzilla eat? It could be Kingstonians people – just sayin.
STAY PUFT MARSHMALLOW MAN – Sure, it’s a big blob of marshmallow and he could give every single Kingstonian a life time supply of marshmallow for their smores or rice krispie squares – but he’s still a gigantic blob of destruction! I’ll choose a high rise over marshmallow man.
ROBOTS – It could happen people. With the advancement of technology, robots could soon run the world. Who’s to say it wouldn’t start here in Kingston?
KING KONG – A gigantic ape swing around on our heritage buildings? I think not. Plus, I dig bananas and I’m sure Mr. Monkey Man would eat up ALL of them.
