    What's going to happen to the old courthouse? It's one of the most beautiful buildings in Newfoundland!

    Rewind two years ago and the telegram ran this same story or similar as this site being a potential site for this building.

    I would suggest that it would have been more to the government's credit to have approved this site as the PERFECT location for a well designed senior's village. I can visualize the area consisting of well designed, affordable, single one or two bedroom units sitting on small cul de sacs. A perfect area because it's near a hospital, doctor's offices, drugstores, Sobeys, a senior's club, on a bus route, and everyone keeps the view of southside hills!! Why can't government think like this? We are crying out for places that are affordable and still they don't listen! We have enough luxury homes for seniors. We need something for all the others more than ever with the baby boomers coming on. You can put a courthouse anywhere. Seniors need more and better consideration! I suppose my comments with also fall on deaf ears! It's time to put more pressure on government before we are all on the street. Wouldn't that be shameful? But where are we to go when we can no longer keep our home? Just saying!
