The fate of Bryn Mawr May 18, 2016

From The Telegram's editorial of April 4, 2016: 

Jeers: to the endless attrition of heritage. Another glorious old home in St. John’s — Bryn Mawr, or Baird’s Cottage — may soon be a victim of the wrecking ball. This beautiful Victorian house in the east end of St. John’s is more than 100 years old, but has fallen into disrepair. City councillors, as usual, are vowing to save the old gem, but we’ve heard that refrain before. The big question is, who are all these developers, and why are they intent on destroying our past? Is there no one with a hint of vision left, a sense of historic pride? Or is it all about taking the easiest route, with the biggest payoff? So tragic.

 Baird Cottage, also known as Bryn Mawr, is at the centre of discussions about how the city designates heritage status to buildings.
Fire in Fort Mac May 05, 2016

There are few places so far from Newfoundland and Labrador that can provoke a more local response when tragedy strikes than Fort McMurray. The town may be three or four time zones away, depending on where you are in the province, but these people are our neighbours. If there was ever any doubt, these stories prove the point.

 A wall of fire rages outside of Fort McMurray, Alta. Tuesday night. Raging forest fires whipped up by shifting winds have sliced through the middle of the oilsands hub, sending tens of thousands fleeing in both directions and prompting the evacuation of the entire city.
