Move British Columbia's legislative library to a new building

The pending (temporary) closure of the BC legislative library has created quite a furor in the local media lately here is the quick missive I fired off to the local paper which was published today in the Times-Colonist:

Instead of simply saying no to the proposed closure of the legislative library, I think there is an opportunity here for us to have an eyesore removed from near our cherished legislature.

I am speaking about the hideously ugly "temporary" buildings erected behind the legislature in the 1950s.

The clear win/win is to tear down these 50-year-old temporary tin and clapboard structures and build a new office building that would house a larger and more publicly accessible legislative library while at the same time allow for the required expansion of office space for the politicians and their staff within the legislature.
