A compassionate city

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 29/7/2014 (644 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

Bravo to Shawn Tester for his articulate plea for Winnipeg's responsibility as a compassionate city, and for compassion for The Forks lands (A little compassion for Forks lands, July 26).

We are in a rut. Our neurons are so firmly attached to the altar of the almighty dollar that the Garden of Compassion proposal almost seems an unworthy venture for The Forks.

The parking lot in the foreground of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights was the proposed site of the Garden of Compassion.

We need to throw the switch, get off the old track, and follow the path of compassion and healing.
