Letter: News shows JP gentrification

I couldn’t help but notice the irony on the front page of the Feb. 17 edition. At the top of the page is the line, “Is JP gentrified? Numbers say no”; yet your front-page stories are about “a groundbreaking tenant-run management corporation [that] will retire at the end of March” (“Bromley-Heath leader retires; BHA takes over”) and about the Home for Little Wanderers turning into “a huge, high-end apartment building with 190 to 200 units.”

Sandra Storey may interpret the numbers as “no,” but the news suggests just the opposite.
