Letter to the Editor: Plebiscite needed PDF Print E-mail

BY A.D. CROOKES, THE STARPHOENIX FEBRUARY 24, 2012

Regarding headline in the story, Mendel move supported (SP, Feb. 16, one wonders what the criteria was for the people who were contacted. If council is so sure that everybody is in agreement with this survey, why not put it to a plebiscite during the election?

I, for one, would not vote in favour of the move. When it comes down to federal money, I am sure that different departments have money floating around for the extension of the existing Mendel Art Gallery.

There is talk of whether to charge admission to the proposed new gallery, which would make it pretty expensive when you consider the underground parking, whereas there is plenty of free parking across the road from the Mendel. Come on, council, get off your butts and let's have a plebiscite.
