- Reaction score
I think people mistake "old" with "historic", resulting in old buildings with no real historic value being "preserved" at the expense of building modern, efficient, and useful buildings.
Or, people thinking because it is "historic" it is worth the money, like the historian in the article I posted saying "it is worth the time and money".
From a military perspective, I don't agree at all. If NS/HRM wants to take the bldg on, then take it on. If it's worth the money, then sink provincial and municipal $ into the blgs...but I bet the voters at those level don't want to see the money spent there where it can actually benefit people elsewhere.
We are pretty stupid about some things in this country of ours.
