Very interesting indeed!All my support for the cause of carrying forward the legacy of a distinguishable historic core of Hamilton. Even though I could label myself as the one who belongs to the fraternity of 'heritage professionals' and also because I am somehow somewhere connected with all this considering myself a 'global citizen' - what begs to be asked is: 1)Were there really violations of set rules and standard procedures? 2)Does not every person have a right to think and act - first and foremost for his own good? 3)Does this medium of discussion alone represent the true and widespread perceptions of 'heritage' in the people who are going to be most affected by this action i.e. local residents? 4)Does not Walmart form any part of our existing culture and the 'heritage' for our future generations? It is not so much about 'right' and 'wrong' but a reflection of what our societies have become and with what values we want to move forward? Sustainability is a far cry in all of this. From one point of view it can be said that "fortunately - at least this debate is happening" whereas another viewpoint may be "how does it matter - what will be will be!!!" May better sense prevail!
