I read this in the September edition of the Economist and changed it to suit our situation in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
Pity the poor developer who is opposed by all these NIMBYs (Not In My Backyard).
Well, I am a GOMMBY (paid Good Money for My Backyard).
What do I do when I encounter a GROSPY (Getting Rich On Spoiling People’s Yards) with a GRAB (the Goal of Raising Awful Buildings)?
There is no hint of CRILBY (Compensation for Real and Intangible Loss of Backyards).
Of course we are angry.
