City wastes cash on public artwork

To the Editor,

Re: Public art on display, May 8.

Yet again, I’m flabbergasted by the utter throwing away of tax money.

This year’s public art program has been unveiled with a ‘Gates of Opportunity’ monstrosity across the street from the Port Theatre.

As if enough money wasn’t being thrown at the theatre, now more loot has been used to help put up rusting pieces of triangle steel.

What’s even more sickening is city staff and arts supporters want more of our money in the future for works of art like this.
