Letter: Condos wrong for Minter Gardens in Chilliwack

Editor:

Re: The Future of Minter Gardens, July 31

I like the possibility that the University of Fraser Valley will get involved with Minter Gardens. Several faculties could each have responsibility for a section of the gardens. For one department alone it might be too much, although not impossible. Each could have a theme and place interns and workshops there.

I was privileged to join a tour of the very large and varied Devonian Gardens when I attended an alumni weekend at the University of Alberta. I was impressed with the variety of ways that that the university is involved. It was thrilling.

I am against using the area for new condos. What a ridiculous waste of the heritage Brian Minter has provided through his many years of skilled dedication.
