Hiding artwork is politicall­y correct, but morally wrong


So, let me get this straight. The mural paintings in the B.C. legislatur­e are being covered up until a later date, when they might be removed.

The government wants to preserve them until a time when new technology allows them to be moved without damage.

So this means they will be saved, but where will they be taken to in the future? Could be we are entering the Dark Ages. When our craziness for political correctnes­s is over and becomes our shameful history, these paintings will see the light of day again. Rick Thomas Victoria
