Niagara Gazette —
Sitting in her double-wide mobile home, Judi Dinsmore said it is a strange sensation to have everyone around her — elected officials, trades unions, fellow citizens — rooting for a project that will so drastically alter the life of her family.
She understands why so many are happy that the mall is expanding, with the additional construction jobs, retail jobs and sales tax revenue that it will bring to the region. But she can’t help but feel, with no solid plans set for November, as if she is on a sinking vessel lost at sea, waiting to be engulfed by the waters, she said.
“It’s nobody’s fault,” Judi said. “It’s just circumstance. We understand that.”
