Letter to the Editor - By Margi Corbett, The StarPhoenixDecember 4, 2009
Regarding the proposed Art Gallery of Saskatchewan, some people say it needs a big pot of money and federal funding is the only money available right now. This is called selling out, and it is not a strong enough argument to destroy a beloved Saskatoon landmark and cultural icon.
The fact that an intelligent person like John Hampton would actually refer to the Galaxy Cinema as a cultural centre (New gallery builds on Mendel legacy, SP, Nov. 27) illustrates the depths to which we have sunk in trying to rationalize a bad idea.
It takes vision to build a great city. Our elected officials are absolutely wrong to opt for the easiest way out of a problem that they created in the first pace.
