From the StarPhoenix June 13, 2011 - Letter to the Editor
What do an aging freeway bridge, a poorly executed sound wall, a major storm water outlet, a set of public washrooms, and an eyesore of a sewage lift station across the river from these have in common?
The Mendel Art Gallery will be giving up its existing natural river park setting for a commanding view of all these great pieces of urban infrastructure. Also, the predominance of so much concrete at the gallery's proposed new location pales in comparison to the pastoral wood-chip trails that are easily accessed from the Mendel's current site.
River settings are not all created equal.
