Global News writer says Fort McMurray got what it deserved

Global News has a human resource issue to deal with after their urban planner contributor Andre Darmanin tweeted this about Fort McMurray:

Imagine the outrage had he said the same about the Lac-Magantic train derailment.

Update: Global News has responded by disavowing Darmanin and stating he is no longer working with them:

    THE EASTERN MEDIA SLOBS LIKE OUR OIL MONEY; THOSE WHO WANT IT MINED AND DRILLED OUT OF THE GROUND AND EXPECT FIRST
    DIPS ON
    ANY OIL PROFITS TO FUND THEIR
    LIFESTYLES
    LEAVING LITTLE
    FOR ALBERTANS,
    AND THOSE WHO
    WANT
    A LIFESTYLE
    INDEPENDANT OF
    OIL AND GAS

    ALTOGETHER
    (PRESUMABLY
    FUNDING THEIR
    HIGH SPENDING
    WAYS FROM AIR
    OR FORIEN DEBT. DESRVES IT? WAIT UNTIL THEY HAVE TO PAY THE PIPER WHEN TRUDEAU CANT BORROW ANYMORE. THESE PEOPLE HEAR CONFIRMATION OF THEIR IDEALS FROM SUN UP TO SUN DOWN FROM LIKE – MINDED PEOPLE AND NARY A CONTRADICTORY WORD ABOUT REALITY IN THE MEDIA PARTY. LETS HOPE THEY FREEZE IN THE DARK!!

    Urban planners are a pox on development, the fire services have been fighting with them for decades, essentially over their demands for green spaces, there are several studies on the subject of urban/wild land interface and the dangers of including conifer trees into an urban setting, particularly in northern communities, however, planners decide that green plans and esthetics trump fire safety, there are very severe consequences when outside fires are given pathways into developments. Sorry for the run-on sentence.

    If by “poorly planned” he means the city wasn’t allowed to move the forest back away from the suburbs, then he is right. However, I rather think this particular useless ornament means the town wasn’t planned the way he would have done, even if (and particularly if) the residents preferred what they had to what he would have forced upon them.
