Wrong park used for concerts
Last week, Charlottetown’s Confederation Landing Park was imprisoned by a six-foot, non-transparent fence preventing local residents, tourists and cruise ship passenger from entering and enjoying the green grass, colourful flowers and well-trimmed shrubs of the beautiful park. The area was fenced in awaiting a major weekend concert and thousands of people to litter upon, spit upon and stomp upon this site.
My intention is not to lay blame but rather to ask a question. Why, why would anyone with one ounce of common sense use this pristine park as a concert venue when onequarter of a kilometre away is located a $1.4 million venue with ample parking and all the amenities designed for and intended for hosting such events?
Why leave the real concert site empty, alone and lonesome awaiting some ball hockey tournament, while using the pristine waterfront park as a concert venue? Why? George MacDonald, Charlottetown
