In the beginning was the Museum. As a stay at home mum who was determined to make a child prodigy I took older boy to the museum. I mean I took younger boy to the museum as well but by the time I got to him, I no longer believed in making child prodigies but was a firm believer in the not hurrying your child business of this book fame" The Hurried Child" . But let me now NOT go off on yet another tangent. I was speaking of the MUSEUM. In the beginning there was the Museum. I loved that place. Although I have entomophobia I was still able to approach the stick insects as they imitated branches. I was able to remember the horror of cockroaches in Kuwait as I watched the heaping up of the community in a glass case. I was able to see pond life intricately and up close in a bowl. It was so much fun. Who knows if the boys got any benefit from the large platforms of butterflies gorgeously spread out in death? I didn't care any more about their brains. I was in love. Just like I loved my books, I loved the museum with its high end architectural features such as dinosaurs and rocks. To learn that the dumb government was going to blow it up was something I had to accept just as I had to accept the blowing up of perfectly usable and repurposable buildings such as hospitals in the Klein error. The PC error will be noted for the hospital blowing up at taxpayer losses. The NDP error will be noted for the blowing up of a museum that could be repurposed for any number of uses. But of course there has to be the political will to do this repurposing. And there appears to be no political will. June Acorn has reported in her most recent update in her ongoing struggle to save the museum that no one is interested in repurposing the museum. As in the case of the closing of the Michener Centre that the public was able to prevent temporarily we need a huge outcry to ensure the museum is saved. Please add your voice to this effort so that we have a museum in our city that is world class but isn't being repurposed because of dumb government decisions: https://www.change.org/p/alberta-infrastructure-save-the-mu… Alberta Infrastructure : Save the Museum Building in Old Glenora by June Acorn · 5,428 supporters PETITION UPDATE Few of our voices were heard at this meeting June Acorn Canada OCT 29, 2016 — The meeting was poorly advertised exclusively to the constituents of Glenora, Sara Hoffman's riding, on the back of her newsletter in small print and by flyers two days before which were only received by some constituents.

Julie Ali · University of Alberta I have no confidence in the NDP folks we voted for to do the sensible and productive thing. I would imagine that their only concern is how to get rehired. This won't happen because guess what? Not listening to their constituents who happen to be their employers mean that we don't vote for them again. Extremely disappointing but there you go. The NDP folks got a single chance to change the system in Alberta but they lacked the political will to make hard decisions that benefit their constituents. We're not happy. Like · Reply · 8 hrs-

Thank you for the update. This is extremely disappointing. I would think the NDP would be more interested in the history and culture of this province and in avoiding waste.

I have confidence that the Alberta government will preserve this building if they possibly can.
