I think the mistake here is to view the City as a profit driven entity. It's not.
The City is in the business of collecting taxes and building projects just like this.
Beyond everything else I'm astounded with this statement and that you think the city is, or ought to be, in this business.
Are you aware perhaps of a time before govt's and taxes? You must not be aware such a world ever existed.
That said the present day "business" of civic govt is to provide organization, facilitate regulation, and fund necessary expenditures on a municipal level.
Civic govt, and especially that of a prairie city, does not have the purview of building Paris on the banks of the North Saskatchewan river albeit I can see how abundant confusion would arise from present administration.
