Joe McGuirk from McGuirk Bros. Construction installs drywall in the main stairwell at Province House as part of the repairs needed after a large piece of plaster fell from the ceiling in January.
Editor: It was a little disconcerting in this morning’s Guardian to learn that, in spite of the millions spent on the remediation of it last year, Province House is still falling down like London Bridge. That will not do, for in this sesquicentennial year although the Cradle of Confederation may have been rocked, it must not be permitted to fall down.
What is the answer? Why, precisely the same answer as that adopted when P.E.I. couldn’t afford the railway it had built — get the federal government to pay for it.
Deja vu, history repeats itself, a very appropriate solution in the year of our celebration of Confederation.
