PETERS – Don’t wait too long to revive the performing arts centre proposal

IF YOU THINK ABOUT WHAT GOT YOU THROUGH the worst depths of the pandemic isolation, you will probably land on some form of performing arts.

Maybe you leaned heavily on television or Netflix or another streaming media service.

Maybe you got way too into your music collection, creating an endless litany of playlists categorized alphabetically by bass player’s middle name.

Or maybe you found a podcast you couldn’t tear yourself away from.

    Who has the appetite for even thinking of a new PAC and burdening residential citizens with a huge debt for a white elephant?
    As an example, we have umpteen empty or nearly empty churches now and who knows when people can even go inside to full capacity to enjoy singing “religious” songs and spend time together? Not exactly performing arts but you catch my drift.
    Let the PAC proposal sit in a cold case file for a few years.
