Cultural Centre and Library

New Belleville Library

There may still be hope for
bringing us back from the Brink. The
unanimous decision by Belleville Council at the May10/04 meeting is
encouraging. They did the right thing by selecting the Pinnacle
St./Campbell St. site. It is too bad we could not observe the process
that went on in the in-camera meeting prior to the council meeting.
Thanks to all those people who lobbied through letters to the editor,
work on the petition, arranging for showing the Back from the Brink
video etc., etc. And especially, thanks to the non
site-selection-committee members of council for not being cowed into
selecting a less desireable site.
As BCI comes down watch for the wall
shame to go up here. The disgraceful destruction of this building that
would have provided a library and cultural centre for less than the
cost of the library (there I've said it again!) must never be forgotten.
