No, we are sorry kids, they are not swimming pools, although they are large enough to be and have been described as such and the reinforced concrete used would be enough for one. No, they are flower beds or tree beds or something and they will be part of the very expensive, new “Town Centre”, so called, in Wolfville.
As usual, appearance trumps everything. No matter that the stores downtown have flooding basements due to aging water infrastructure. No matter that we have 14 – count em- empty storefronts. No matter that we need the parking spaces that have disappeared and the Town has plenty of trees and flowers already. No matter Sherwood STILL isn’t paved.
But it is provincial and federal money as well as our tax dollars at work, you say? You mean you don’t pay federal or provincial taxes? Believe it. We all pay for it, all of it. We would wish it was spent on something meaningful.
If someone takes a picture of these monstrosities we would be pleased to post it.
