Well, rules are rules. If they let RIM, McDonalds can come tomorrow and say, "hey, you let RIM, why can't we do that too?".
Give that councillor a break.
I love RIM and all, advertising within the city itself isn't that big of a deal. It's more celebratory than to get Public Interest. But now that this councillor voted against it, it made a big newsline splash and now everyone knows about it.

^^^ McDonalds hasn't put a Billion+ dollars back into our community over the past 10+ years like RIM, it's founders and employees have. No one else has.
Gazzola's not helping his political career with his latest decision.Z30

Every other business in the community can benefit from a successful RIM as well. I doubt there will be complaints.Z30

Look at Rob Ford (Mayor of Toronto), he's still being haunted by a vote he made, all over a case of $3000-$4000 of donations that was to go to a football team. This in some people's mind is "charity", to the lawyer who and the judge who presided, he was breaking the law. (Not the same situation, but it's about going against a law, or rules that were put in place.)
Now, lets end this political discussion and will someone post a picture of what RIM put up! :P

But I agree: let's see some pictures!

If it were not for RIM, KW would not be half the city it is now. Everyone else can get stuffed......I support this decision. KW should celebrate everything RIM, and what that company has afforded this city

KW'ites owe RIM
I know its two cities, But I view it as one. I grew up in Waterloo, and now reside in Kitchener. The boarders are blurred for me both literally and figuratively

It's time for the cities to amalgamate - but that's another thread on another forum.
All that said...we both strongly agree that council is doing the right thing by letting RIM (who is footing the bill for everything they do here) celebrate (i.e. promote) the release of BB10 by having a big freaking party.Z30
