The biggest shame, if there really was one, was the 3-minute time-limit for each speaker. Many were left with much more to give to the process.
In case you are wondering, the tally was almost exactly even for both sides, about 20 each, and a significant number showed no preference. Certainly the business community was out in force, speaking mostly earlier in the proceedings. Throughout the evening some of the most compelling moments came from surprisingly passionate and articulate sources.
If there were any speakers from West of Sir John A Boulevard, they weren't many. There isn't much doubt which way this thing would go in a city-wide plebiscite. Don't they know it now.
