    We missed the boat (pardon the pun) on beautifying the Harbor Front years ago. A prime example of beautification of a dreary dull waterfront would be www.kingswarf.ca. That is what we need here in St. John's. Though first before we start to beautify our harbor front, we should beautify our Council when the next election rolls around.

    Kevin, I agree absolutely. A temporry fence for the purposes of a few Cruise ships a year makes sense, from a security perspective....but a permanent fence would be both an insult and an 'eye-sore' for the city's livyers, not to mention other travellers to the beautiful Capital. The fense as a temporary security necessity is rational tolerance....otherwise, a decision to leave the fence permanently left in place...would be a decision approximating hanging a cloth over the 'Mona Lisa'. Counsellors wake up...where's the 'even adequate' justification' for making such an intellectually vacant decision. The wharf area, as is, has been there for...how many decades? Why is it necessary to have it fenced now? Don't spoil the openness of the harbour, for the 'in context' a few sheckles a year you receive from tourists, as welcomed as they are. The fence's permanent positioning would serve what purpose...really, other than a necessary temporary security zone....to control curiosity seekers a few handful of days each year.
