To the Editor,
The city bought and expropriated the lands now called the Port of Nanaimo Centre.
That said, how positive is this? Expropriate the old A&B Sound building and demolish it.
Now you could put a nice square with a modern theme for today’s veterans, smooth sidewalks and flower beds around a cenotaph and public washrooms.
Or go one further, and expropriate enough to include a transit bus depot as well.
Forgetting to drop the people that live here at the doorsteps of downtown could be the problem.
