and another blessing

in the heart of corner brook we are loosing a green space. the city of corner brook lacks foresight and has, over the years, allowed the historical beauty of this place to be bulldozed. this green space will be replaced with a fast food tim hortons and wendy drive-thru. the deal is done and our protests fell on deaf ears. my heart has been broken with the thought of the magnificant old chestnut trees, that ring the green space, being torn down. walking under them is like entering into a cathedral. after many unanswered messages to city hall, i finally reached someone who was able to tell me that the trees will be saved. that a 30 foot band of green will be kept. that the building will be "residential style" and blend into the surroundings. i think maybe someone is listening...
