Ques­tion­ing the need to ex­pro­pri­ate Ri­d­ley Of­fices

The Compass - - Editorial - Joy French-Cole­man writes from Har­bour Grace

I’ve just re­turned from Florida and have a lot of catch­ing to do with my back is­sues of The Compass. One of the ar­ti­cles that caught my eye was the is­sue of the Ri­d­ley premises in the cove in Har­bour Grace.

The pow­ers that be are ap­par­ently try­ing to make this into an in­dus­trial area, but it is not, it’s res­i­den­tial.

That beau­ti­ful stone build­ing was the home of former Se­na­tor Eric Cook and Mrs. Cook for many years. My par­ents would visit them quite of­ten there, and I also did at one time for af­ter­noon tea.

It was a great plea­sure to visit with them in their lovely home that is such a replica of so many stately homes in Eng­land that I had op­por­tu­ni­ties to visit.

Please let the lady who now owns this res­i­dence en­joy her beau­ti­ful dwelling in peace with all and sundry.
