For­mer hos­pi­tal ideal for mu­seum

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

I have writ­ten sev­eral times re­gard­ing this mat­ter. I am pleased to read there are still other per­sons deeply in­ter­ested in the build­ing of a Prince Ed­ward Is­land Mu­seum.

The pro­ject has been over stud­ied and promised for years. Now is the time to build it in time to com­mem­o­rate the 150th birth­day of Canada.

The ideal lo­ca­tion would be the grounds where the for­mer Prince Ed­ward Is­land Hos­pi­tal was built and is no longer in use. It could be a beau­ti­ful area with plenty of green space and good park­ing fa­cil­i­ties. Also, it would be back to back with our beau­ti­ful Fan­ning­bank. One would com­pli­ment the other in many ways.

In­deed a “Golden Op­por­tu­nity” as an­other writer has stated.

I ap­peal to all Is­lan­ders to en­cour­age the govern­ment of Prince Ed­ward Is­land to take ac­tion on this long over­due pro­ject and fi­nally high­light our very pre­cious legacy. He­len M. MacPhail, Clyde River
