Save heritage building


Re: “Prof struggles to defend heritage buildings,” March 3

As a former student at Wilfrid Laurier University and a present instructional assistant at WLU, I’m writing to applaud Dr. Lisa Wood’s stand against the destruction of the 41 buildings on the south side of Colborne Street in Brantford.

I believe strongly in the need for academics to participate in the communities where they work.

There have been several other noted organizations rallying against this, including the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario, the Heritage Canada Foundation and recently the Ontario Ministry of Culture.

I hope that the City of Brantford will rethink the demolition before it is too late.
