But it's in Preston. I don't know any other options that exist there.

Surely that is why there is talk of reviving the Galt & Preston Street Railway and the Preston & Berlin Street Railway?

   

Preston is situated between the main lines of the Canadian Pacific and Canadian National Railways. It connects with the C. P. R. at Galt and the C. N. R. at Kitchener by the Grand River Radial line which passes within a block of the hotel and connects with all trains.

Or any other options that Preston residents would want to have, for that matter.

I know they want it to be 'affordable' housing. Far enough away from "the money" so you don't have NIMBY's complaining.

On the other hand, though, 'affordable' usually means any developer that had an interesting may decline, as there is no money to be made in 'affordable'.

A subsidy from the city can make it work.

I thought that such subsidies were the norm.
