More Metal Trees


In “Iron trees may help downtown branch out” (London Free Press; 2008/08/29) Paul Berton applauds the plan to erect more ugly metal trees in the downtown despite an admission that “some people are confused” and “some people dislike them” and “some people would rather see real trees.”

Why? Because “very few people can ignore them. That’s the real triumph.”

Well, if that were true, downtown business owners would be clamouring for more graffiti. But I don’t see that happening.

photoIf the Downtown Business Association wants to spend money improving it’s area of the city, I suggest that it install public drinking fountains like the ones in Victoria Park instead. Those at least would serve some practical purpose.
